For easy and efficient chipping, get the Estwing E3-WC Welding Chipping Hammer. The Welding Chipping Hammer has a bonded and molded Shock Reduction Grip® which offers the utmost in both comfort and durability while reducing vibrations caused by impact. Estwing hammers are the only hammers that can make this claim. The head and handle are forged in one piece and are fully polished.
The Estwing E3-WC has both a pointed tip end and chisel end. The combination of the pick end and chisel end provides more accuracy for the removal of specimens or minerals from the rock matrices. As a result, this hammer is primarily used for mineral or fossil collection and not for breaking apart rocks in the field.
It is important to note that sheaths do not work with this hammer, mostly because the head of this hammer is uniquely shaped compared to most other rock hammers. Nonetheless, the E3-WC is top quality, well crafted, easy to swing, and very durable. If your primary use will be for chipping, welding, or both, then look into this hammer.
