A small, light weight geological hammer, weighing only 254 grams in total, the 0.5lb Gibson geological hammer has a head with a small flat face and a chisel end for splitting rock. The small size & weight of this hammer makes it ideal for use by children (under strict supervision from parents or someone with the correct knowledge & where all safety concerns have been addressed: i.e. goggles, hard hats etc)
The hammer uses a fibreglass handle, which is perfect for reducing the shock produced in each strike. This hammer is ideal for the extraction of small minerals or fossils, giving children a taste of the world of geology & fossil hunting.
