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.
