Estwing E3-16S Rip Claw Hammer $32.68 + Delivery (Free with Prime $49 Spend) @ Amazon US via Amazon AU

90

Solid steel hammer with polished head and shock reduction grip

Looks like an excellent choice for around the home

Approx $59+ postage locally

Edit: as fj123 pointed out, this is a straight claw hammer rather than a traditional curved claw. It is less good at pulling out nails (though still capable of this), but more versatile

    Very good price for very nice hammer. And bonus is it is from Amazon US store so i can finally purchase something that has been sitting in my cart as this brings over the spend limit for the international postage.

    It is actually called Framing Hammer whhich is a close relative of Claw hammer and has a relatively straight claw as compared to claw hammer which has an angulated Claw.It is primarly used for assmebling House frames. Hope it helps

      A good weapon for a zombie apocalypse too :P

      I do really owe myself a decent hammer. I've been dealing with rubbishy wooden handled hand me downs for too long and given the amount of wood work and home work I do it is insane…

    I don't need a hammer, or know if this is a deal or not, but I appreciate that the postage costs (for non-Prime shoppers) is shown. Thanks.

      If you are really interested in finding out why, go to the cloest Bunnings and try to hold 2 different brands in same weight and feel the difference.

      Not only the craftmanship of the hammer itself but also the balancing and the weight distribution as well.

      Also, the energy used for melting the steel into 1500c, mould and make a hammer can be massive.

      • You can also smash the two hammers together and you can feel the difference as well. Quality tools really shows.

      Estwing have been around forever and are one of the top hammer makers in the world.

      For someone who uses a hammer regularly, and wants a hammer for life, the difference is more than noticeable.

      • Makes sense. I already have a very good set of tools from my dad which has lasted since the 1970s.

        Strange people need to keep buying tools as as you said well made ones basically last forever.

  • Is cashrewards applicable for this?

    • Should be as ordering through Amazon AU. And hoping it is as I used it as well

    do they sell a hammer which looks like thor's?

    • Hard to lift bro…

    • No, it would be too big to use and make you really Thor.

  • At 16oz it's very light for a framing hammer. I personally think that's possibly a good thing. A lot of try hards at work are swinging a 28oz and wondering why they're getting a sore elbow or forearm. I'm personally running a 22oz.

    • Definitely an age old argument. I stand by you can swing a lighter hammer harder/faster producing more force on the impact site. And a lighter hammer going to be more accurate imo.

  • which one out of this and the one posted here?

    I've had my eye on the Dewalt hammer for a while.

      Haven't used Dewalt, but you can't go wrong with an Estwing.

      Very well balanced, one solid piece so no breakage, the only reason people replace them is due to them getting lost or stolen.

      I haven't used either, but the DeWalt also has excellent reviews and has a side nail puller, which I think is a nice feature. Also very reasonable price for local stock. I can't find where the DeWalt is made. Estwing is made in the USA, for what it's worth. I think the main thing that should determine which one to go for is which size you would like - DeWalt 20oz head vs. 16oz for this one

      • -1

        the Dewalt also has a magnetic nail starter, a waffle face and an oval shaped face for easier toe nailing.

        I think Im going Dewalt. Cant beat it.

    I'm finding some really good deals on the tools either much cheaper or not even really available here:

    ie

    Stanley 46-053 Premium Adjustable Quick Square Layout Tool
    $30+ here if you could find it, $17 on Amazon AU
    https://www.amazon.com.au/gp/product/B00002X2HO

    Got my Bosch custom case stuff that's even dropped in price since I bought:
    Bosch SDMS48 Impact Tough Screwdriving Set, 48-Piece Set
    $29.95, can't even find it here really. Was really after a case I can put other bits into and keep with me, perfect can get blank inserts and an empty box if have existing decent bits.
