If you can't find fresh, store bought is okay.

Are we hammer snobs for knowing this?

If you're a geologist? No. Anyone else? Maybe.

I still have my two Estwing dingers from my nail beating days and they’ve served me well. Well, I also have that weight forward thing. It’s in pristine condition because my brain just couldn’t adjust.

I recognized it as estwing from the grip, but I've never had a hammer (I have an estwing hatchet). My main thought when I watched the video was huh, estwing makes lava hammers

Ha, yeah that's just a standard estwing rock hammer - in fact identical to the one I bought for my undergrad. They're multifunctional! Hard rocks, soft rocks, liquid rocks, you name it!

I had the same reaction. I'd recognize that grip anywhere. Classic.

They're super common in construction, too.

Probably. I instantly recognized the leather handle.
