      It's a good hammer, does the job.

      What more can you say, it hammers well and feels good and balanced in my hand.

      can't go wrong with a Craftsman hand tool

      I had an old curved claw hammer but wanted a rip claw hammer to go along with it. You can't go wrong with a Craftsman hand tool since they have lifetime warranties. The only reason I wouldn't give 5 stars in because they put a sticker on the grip and when you take it off it makes the grip very sticky. Soap and water helped a little but my palm still gets a little sticky after holding the hammer. I could have left the sticker on but I know it would have started to peel anyway when my hand rubbed it while I used the hammer.

      I would recommend this product to a friend.

      It won't wear out

      I bought this hammer 35 years ago and it's still one of my favorites. The grip is a little worn and the handle has a few chips, but it's a great tool.

      I would recommend this product to a friend.

      I prefer this product over the curved claw or wooden handled hammer. It seems like less work to pull nails and staples out. Rubber grip is very handy, especially if your hands get sweaty while working. I have never had a problem with any of my Craftsman tools

      I would recommend this product to a friend.

      can be replaced for free...

      i have broken 2 of these hammers, but the positive thing is that you can take them back for a replacement.   took about a week to break the first one and a month on the second.

      Holding Its Weight

      This Craftsman hammer is a perfect edition to any shop or toolbox. The 16oz weight is just right, not too light and not too heavy; and yet strong enough to deliver a swing to get the job done. The fiberglass handle provides strength and it's red color makes it easy to spot anywhere. The head is strong steel and quite large, giving you the weight you need and a claw that is plenty large to pry at almost anything. I recommend this hammer to anyone in search of a hammer, especially if you don't like wooden handles.

      I would recommend this product to a friend.

      Great all purpose hammer, MADE IN AMERICA

      I was looking to replace a Hammer I had lost in a Tornado clean up project at my brothers house in April. I knew that I would at all costs, only buy a hammer made in America, after all, the job you save may be your own. I have been a long time craftsman tool lover, but was disappointed when I first went to sears to find the first several hammers I looked at, were made in China, as is most of this world now days. I have had bad experiences with Items I had purchased in the past that are made in China, so I vow to not support companies that contribute to America's unemployment. Sears realy shined in this area today, they offered several QUALITY tools made in America, so I quickly snatched this one up, and wil continue to be a BIG fan of Craftsman tools, so long as they are made in this country.

      I would recommend this product to a friend.

      Jack of all trades

      This is a very nice hammer. Well balanced, just the right weight for most household uses. (I am a professional aircraft mechanic and we have very little need for framing hammers such as this so my experience is all in home uses). The fiberglass handle has the right amount of flex to absorb vibration while applying most of the force to the nail.

      Please note that this is a framing style hammer, it does not have the deeply curved claw seen on most household hammers. This means you have reduced leverage for extracting stubborn nails, the straighter claw is designed to allow ripping boards. That is seldom a problem however, I have never met a nail that it could not pull out.

      I Like This Hammer for My House-Hold Repair Tool Bag

      If you have read many of my reviews, you know that I keep a separate set of tools in a Craftsman Soft Sided Tool Bag under the kitchen sink. This is very handy to have for when those pesky little repairs or assemblies pop-up.

      I maintain a fully equipped wood-working shop in the garage and it is well stocked with high end tools (mostly Craftsman Professionals). For my house-hold repair bag, however I don't always have top-of-line stuff, but you can rest assured they are still Craftsman.

      I really like the fiberglass handle and rubber grip on this hammer. It has good balance and I don't notice much vibration when striking a surface. The grip allows me to use the hammer safely even with sweaty palms.

      Remember quality work requires quality tools!

      I would recommend this product to a friend.

      Love the handle

      A hammer is a hammer is a hammer - NOT! This is an upgrade over your ordinary hammers. Nice fiberglass handle with a rubber hand grip on end. Feels good to hold, but not too heavy to hold.

      Lifetime warranty.

      I would recommend this product to a friend.
