As you all know.. we wouldnt be fabricators without our trusty hammers. I am very picky with mine, they have to be well balanced and comfortable. I have bought 4 kobalt hammers of different sorts and gotta say they are really nice hammers and hold up to the best of brands, and are very affordable. I just bought a 2.5lb blacksmith style and within a few days has become my go to hammer

Yep, I have a few estwings, and my stiletto framer. Whenever I am doing metal fab I have one of the finish hammers close by.

Yeah my latest Estwing buy is a 16oz stacked leather handle finish hammer. The metal butt plate on the bottom is helluva handy.

I just bought a set of ATD hammers, $46 to the house. I like how their forged heads have a collar under the head to protect the handles... I've used them for a week or so? they seem to be very nice hammers.

These are the only hammers that I would buy. A little more pricy, but will last longer than me.
