This versatile tool is used for lightweight or heavy-duty fastening. Take time to choose one with a good "balance" and grip. The grips are usually made from wood or vinyl (shown here). Ergonomically shaped handles will ensure that you get a hammer that you can use efficiently. The curved claw is designed to lever out old nails.
