The BelOMO 10x21mm(.85") triplet loupe magnifier has a viewing area of 0.65 inch (17mm), much larger than the Bausch & Lomb Hastings Triplet Magnifier. The 3 elements making up this achromatic triplet provide a bright and clear view. The 10x power magnification provides the best magnification to depth of field ratio and is the most popular power for a hand held magnifier. The housing and cover are machined metal and coated with a matte black finish and assembled using flathead screws. Belorussian Optical and Mechanical Association (BelOMA), makers of sights for guided weaponry, camera lenses, and other optical components manufacturers these loupes.
We highly recommend this loupe. This is the lens we use all the time.
Each BelOMO loupe we ship is custom treated to prevent the screws from coming loose with usage.
Heavy duty 3/4'' plain black nylon loupe lanyard with a quick release buckle and a split ring. This lanyard may be used for any purpose but we've had it custom manufactured specifically for use with the BelOMO loupe.
Important: We offer this lanyard for no additional charge when you buy the combo package of the BelOMO loupe with attached lanyard. Attaching the lanyard requires a screw to be removed so let us do it. We've been doing it for years and you save money!
Use the split ring on loupes with a mounting hook. To use the lanyard with a BelOMO loupe remove one screw on the support shaft of your BelOMO loupe, swivel the frame out of the way and slide the end over the support shaft then install the screw again. Don't use the split ring to attach the lanyard to the loupe. (We suggest that you purchase the loupe with the lanyard already installed.)
The Valley Chisel Edge Rock Hammer, sometimes called a Paleontologist's Hammer or Fossil Hammer, has a 20 ounce head and is constructed of one piece drop forged steel with continuous forging grain flow from head to shaft. The two-tone Soft-Touch Rubber cushioned grip is shock absorbent and non-slip. The Valley Chisel Edge Rock Hammer is very similar to the Estwing 20oz Chisel Edge Rock Hammer. It differs from the Estwing mostly in the design of the grip and it is a bit shorter. The chisel edge doesn't have as much bend or bow to it as does the Estwing Chisel Edge Rock Hammer. The Valley Chisel Edge Rock Hammer has a square faced striking head on one end and a chisel edge on the other. The chisel edge is used for splitting layered rock such as shale and slate into flat sheets, usually when hunting fossils. Made in China but it's high quality. We've sold over 1300 and never had a return. The Valley Chisel Edge Rock Hammer is a great tool for the professional or recreational geologist, paleontologist or any rockhound and will last you a life time.

This is Estwing's newest geological tool and sure to become the standard the rock pick carried by geologist and rockhounds.
The main differences between the hammer (Big Face) and the Estwing Supreme 22oz Pointed Tip Rock Hammer is the new Big Face has, wait for it, a bigger face. Think of it like a bull dog or a pug. It's like the 22oz hammer's striking edge is "pushed in" towards the shaft. Like a mountain range created when two plates collide! Or like that day you spent hours pounding away on a chisel. The 22oz hammer's head is about 7/8'' square while the Big Face hammer's head is 1 1/8'' square, about a 1/4'' bigger on each side. Speaking of chisels, this rock hammer's head makes it much better for driving chisels.
Overall the weight of the Estwing Supreme Big Face 24 oz Pointed Tip Rock Hammer E6-24PC and the Estwing Supreme 22oz Pointed Tip Rock Hammer E3-22P are about the same. The Big Face has extra head weight which imparts a more powerful impact, but the overall weight was held the same by attaching the grip to the handle shaft in a different way. (see the images below)
Light enough to easily carry but heavy enough to crack some rock. Estwing Supreme quality in a one-piece forged pointed tip rock pick. Fully polished solid steel with the Estwing shock absorbing nylon-vinyl grip which has been tested to reduce shock by 50%.
