Ah my friend… A good question. A hammer is a carpenters best friend. I myself have a Stiletto 14oz framer with the straight hickory handle. I’ve used quite a few different hammers over the years including the Daluge hammer, which I like, but it just doesn’t compare to the Stiletto. I would definitely recommend it with its only one downfall being that the waffling seems to flatten out quicker than other hammers; however, it hasn’t affected the performance so that I have noticed. I think it would be hard to go back to the conventional steel hammers after using mine. My hands and arms appreciate it. If I were you I would get the Stiletto because no matter what or how many pneumatics you use, you are always going to need a good hammer.
Hope it helps.
