    And at 25 oz. it will fix your thumb in a real hurry.LOL

    That would be hitting the wrong nail.

    Saw this video for making Estwing hammers, thought it would be interesting for those of you who swing them.

    thanks for this, i was turned on to est wing hammers through @58chev, he saw my stanley ones and told me to get est wing and i’ve bought estwing ever since. However I do want to try one of those titanium ones.

    I have stuck with 22 oz for many years. Last year, I tried an Estwing look alike called Blue Ox. It was a pretty good hammer, but I accidentally threw it away so now I am reunited with my Estwing.

    I used to swing a 22 OZ Estwing but had elbow problems. I switched to an ax handle wood handle Fat max which helped a lot. Now i swing a ax handle stiletto Ti-Bone and have no elbow issues. I think the Ax handle gives you a better wrist angle than a straight handle.

    I absolutely love my stiletto tbi2 with the axe handle. I can’t imagine swinging anything else, although it’s time to replace it after 4 years, the claws are worn right down.

    I use a 20oz Stanley for 3 or 4 years. Before that I used an Estwing. Switched to Stanley because of the handle ergonomy.

    Good site, thanks. My old reliable is a 22 oz Estwing, had it for more years than I can recall.

    There are only two ways to do things; the right way and again.

    I agree, I’m a diehard stilletos user. I have 2 one for framing and a smooth face siding-finish hammer.
