Here’s an assortment of various hammers. As you can see, each has a different shape and head than the others. At some point in time every hammer will be used, but I find myself using my basic pick hammer (seen dead middle) 90 percent of the time. The Eastwood Company offers a great selection of Martin hammers, as shown, which are excellent all-around hammers, but costly as well. For those more budget-minded, Eastwood offers a set of private labeled hammers with fiberglass handles that I have found to be more than complimentary.
