IMPORTANT SAFETY NOTE NOT MENTIONED IN THE VIDEO:
Most hammers are NOT intended to hit other hammers. The steel is hardened too much, and doing so can cause the hammer heads to break or shatter, sending shards of steel flying at you. These Stone Busters are intended to be used this way safely. Do not use the techniques shown in this video with other hammers.
