Prospector's Rock Hammer

The Prospector's Rock Hammer is a very light duty rock hammer with a 22 oz. drop forged head and a tubular handle with rubber grip. The hammer head is larger than the Estwing Rock Hammers. The pointed end is not tapered to the extent of nor is it as long as the Estwing Rock Hammers. This is not a tip for digging fossils as it is not tapered enough to really penetrate into sandstone. The larger hammer face, the thin grip, and the duller pointed end make it a great starter rock hammer for children when you're not sure the young geologist is going to stay interested.

Cheap enough that you can throw one in each of your vehicles just in case you come across an interesting roadcu.., er..., outcrop.

The Prospector's Rock Hammer is for light duty or use with soft rock. The hammer head is pressed onto a tubular steel handle. Since it isn't one solid piece of drop forged steel like the Valley Rock Hammer or Estwing Rock Hammers it can't be used for prying out specimens. As with any two piece hammer, with heavy use the head will become detached from the handle. Best used as a hammer for young children without the upper body strength to really swing a hammer with any force.
