If you are going to be whacking a lot of nails all day long, it’s best to use a California hammer. A good one will have a bend towards the end of the handle like that of a hachet. The bend is easier on the wrist and it gives you more power than a straight handle hammer. The long straight claws gives you longer leverage to remove any “oops” nails, not that I did many myself(cough, cough, sputter).
