Ideal for trimming and splitting thinner or softer stones.
If you’re working with Goshen stone or other stone that averages less than 3” thick, this hammer is amazingly versatile. Trim, split and shape small stones with ease. Great for shaping irregular flagging. Replacing the handle with a 16” one will give you more swinging power. Makes a great digging tool for setting foundation stones. Use the square front end for most trimming and the blade for splitting stone along its grain.
If you use the blade end for general trimming or on hard stones it will wear down quickly, and need frequent sharpening.
This is a great beginner’s stone hammer. Equivalent to the 24oz Rock Pick but without the carbide.
Do not strike chisels or other tools with this hammer. Not to be struck with other tools hammers.
