The GeoTul (also known as the GeoTool), is a hammer designed by Canadian geologist from Thunder Bay, Ron Tweedie, in 1988. It was made as an answer to Rons problems of uncovering outcrop from dirt/soil but also to break of samples of outcrops as well. Essentially, he needed a tool that could do both., as such, the GeoTul features a head which has both a flat face for breaking aggregate material as well as a wide chisel edge on the opposite side to allow you to cut, dig or scrape surface soil and mud. The long handle lengths allow users to output more force per swing, whether its to break a rocky outcrop or to dig into soil or to get more grip and purchase to scrape off unwanted vegetation covering an outcrop such as moss or lichen. the head its self is manufactured from 3 pounds (1.1 kg.) of heat treated nickel chrome boro-steel, which the handle is made from high quality hickory wood which also has grit endued paint at the end for superior grip. The head is flat on the top, so you can stand the hammer up right, making it easy to grab when needed. We have standard 30 inch (76 cm) handle lengths available, these hammers are made in Canada.
