One of my sons-in-law has asked for "a good hammer" for a Christmas present. He does a lot of home remodeling and carpentry project (not so much cabinetmaking). I don't want to be spending $100+ for a titanium luxury hammer. "Something to hammer in and pull out nails," was his request. Force = mass x acceleration, you know. Most of my hammers I've had for 30 or 40 years and many of them are older than that, so I'm not current on the market. Any likes or dislikes with the brands out there? I have a 16 oz leather handle Estwing that I like but heard once some carpentry foremen won't allow them on the job (why, I don't know). I have a couple of Hart Framers and they seem to be pretty good, but I don't do a lot of rough carpentry. Before I this request I was walking out of a Lowe's and amazed there were 30 or so different hammers in their hammer section. Really? Edit: Home Depot has at least 106 hammers available online.
