Comments about Hammer, Heavy-Duty Curved-Claw, 16 oz. Head:

This is a hammer. Plain and simple. It will do what hammers do, but this one will not have the head break off or get damaged. It is meant for long term use. It is a solid as a hammer can get. Has a great grip and won't let you down. Pulls nails out like a champ.
