Why do you need a brick hammer? Why won’t a carpenter’s hammer work? The Estwing Brick Hammer will be the tool you use the most in your mason’s tool bag. Use it for splitting bricks and breaking small pieces off of rocks. This Estwing Brick Hammer has a square head and a chisel side for delicate hammering and scraping mortar off the faces of the masonry. Use the chisel end to “score” the brick or stone before using the square hammer end to land the final blow! The polished head and shaft are forged from a solid piece of steel. The nylon and vinyl shock reduction grip and tough end cap make this a hammer to last for decades. Estwing hammers are the most durable on the market. Made in the USA! 24 oz. hammer.
