These were my grandfathers hammers that I inherited some time ago. The leather handles had been taped up with black electrical tape. Still they were his and I used them for the past 10 years. Inspired by other Lumberjock refurb projects I made new handles. The date on the shafts was 5/15/1953. Based on the I-beam construction I am guessing they were Eastwing’s as those look like these once did. Of course having made these this nice I have since retired them and am working on a shadow box to put them in with some details of my grandfathers life as a carpenter. Another project!
