Just a bit of advice, get yourself a good pair of gloves that help reduce shock. The wood handle you got is better for you than the one that is all Titanium but that head absorbs no shock and you can get carpal tunnel….

Sweet hammer Charles!
That baby looks like it’s good for about a million nails!!

Etch your name on it somewhere.

That’s a nice DeWalt tool bag too.

Happy Birthday !

That’s what I swing, I ran with a 23 oz for as long as I can remember with exhausted arms after long days. I picked up a Stiletto and am not going back. Enjoy!

Happy Birthday, Charles! Great looking new hammer! Like Woodwrecker said, put your name or initials on that thing, even if you have to use a nail to scratch it on!!

Happy birthday Charles, with that swell Dewalt tool belt and that dynamite hammer you will be the best equipped carpenter on the jobsite! I think I would paint the handle pink just to keep someone from stealing it! $55…is that a good deal? What do they usually sell for? I have a fiberglass handle hammer from some hardware store I bought 30 years ago.
