I found a rusty framing hammer head behind my house the other day. I was cleaning it up and I found a logo on it that looks like a bear paw or a dog paw. Anyone know what brand that is? Thanks.

Could be Bear Paw or Dog Paw brand.

Here is a picture. The head is still pretty rusty but you shoul be able to make it out.

Don’t have a clue as to what brand it is.

Just put a new handle on it and bang away :o)

That pic does nothing for me, draw a pic and post it.

That is not a hammer head. That is a Viking giant squid-gutting/longship-rigging combination tool.

You know what Red, I think you might just be right. No wonder I was having trouble trying to find a maker.
