The Estwing E6-22BLC Geological hammer is moderately heavy chisel edged hammer suitable for hard and soft rock geology. Weighing in at 22 ounces (566 grams) for head weight, the flat face is wider and so makes breaking and crushing rock a lot easier where as the chisel end allows the user to split, chip or pry rock apart with minimal effort. Often used by geologists and archaeologists, they are particularly useful when there is a need to deliver maximum force per strike in order to obtain sampling material. Like other Estwing products, the hammer is cast in a single piece of American steel meaning there are no joints and so, no weak points. the handle is covered in Estwings famous anti-shock vinyl grip which is blue in colour making the tool easily visible should you accidentally misplace it.
