Chisel Edge

Chisel-edge rock hammers

A chisel-edge rock hammer is often called a paleontologist hammer or a fossil hammer. The chisel edge rock hammer also has a square head on one end which is used for breaking rock apart or for driving chisels. On the other end of the head is a chisel edge. The chisel edge is used to split apart layers in "soft rock".

Soft rock is usually sedimentary rock that has been laid down in distinct layers, usually on a river, lake, or ocean floor. Sometimes it has undergone some metamorphism to become shale or slate. These layers often contain fossils, such as trilobites, dinosaur bones, leaves, fish bones, and many other features of the past.
