The Estwing 24oz Straight Claw Framing Hammer with Long Handle & Vinyl Grip is ideal for framing. The long handle and enlarged head allows large nails to be driven quickly into lengths of timber, whilst a straight claw makes it easy to remove nails quickly even in restricted spaces such as corners. Featuring a smooth fine polished face, the head has been tempered for greater strength to ensure that it does not become deformed after repeated use. Thanks to the perfect balance, you will experience less wrist and arm ache when striking with the hammer. The hammer has Estwing's shock reduction vinyl grip featuring shock reduction technology. This technology offers the best in comfort and durability, whilst reducing the vibrations caused by impact by up to 50%.
This hammer is intended only for driving and removing nails. You should always strike squarely using the centre of the hammer face. Never strike one hammer with another, or strike a chisel or other hand tool with a hammer. The hammer must always be replaced should any damage occur. This can include the appearance of any chips or dents on the face or handle, as well as cracking of the claw section.
