The Geologist Field Tools / Rockhound Tool Kit Estwing BelOMO (14 oz Nylon Handle) contains all the basic tools to start you on your road as a geologist or a rockhound. Or maybe you want to upgrade the tools you already have.
The Estwing Supreme 14 oz Pointed Tip Rock Hammer E3-14P looks like an Estwing Supreme 22 oz Pointed Tip Rock Hammer E3-22P that has shrunk. Eight ounces have been removed from the head wight plus some addition weight reduction due to the handle shape. With a reduced head weight and a shorter handle don't expect to be able to generate the same amount of mechanical force to rock. Too light to really be used with chisel except of tine work. Due to the head weight and handle length expect to take many more strikes to do the same work as the Estwing Supreme 22 oz Pointed Tip Rock Hammer E3-22P. If you have to carry a light hammer check out the 13 oz hammers. Still, this is a good hammer to take hiking or camping when you're not really expecting to have to do field work.
