The Yosemite Hammer features an oiled hickory handle for vibration dampening and excellent grip. Its investment-cast, eighteen-ounce stainless steel head will take any abuse you can dole out and still come back for more. The pick is drooped for pin leverage and has a biner hole for head and pin removal. Comes with replaceable leash.

Not for children or beginners, only pinners.

THE hammer to have... since A5 bit the dust, anyway.

Light enough to carry up 3,000' of vertical stone, heavy enough to funk the most stubborn placements. The "beak" side works well for narrow clearances and the reinforced handle/head interface assures years of solid head attachment. The wooden handle makes one of the best shock-absorbers for this type of application, much better IMHO than fully-cast hammers offered by other companies.
If that's not enough for you, BD has a warranty office that stands behind their product. Solid.

I needed a hammer for all the typical reasons. Probably should have gotten a 26oz. sledge and put a hole in the handle. Could have purchased 3 for the bones shelled out for this hammer. I got it for the looks. What's money anyway?
