The Estwing Supreme 48oz Engineers Hammer (E6-48E) makes a heavier rock hammer useful for tough, hard rock, extraction work. The 4 lb (48 oz) head weight is great chisel driving power. The hammer is similar to the The Estwing Supreme 4lb Long Handled Crack Hammer (E6-4LBL) except the head is narrower and longer than the head on the crack hammer. Call this one a working rock hammer, great for cracking rock and driving chisels.

Estwing's Cushion Grip drilling chisel. Foam cushion grip to reduce impact. Heavy duty wide Hard Cap minimizes chips from flying off the chisel head and provides a wider head to help protect the hands from missed blows. Even has a centering target! This Estwing rock chisel has a bull or pointed edge. The tip is square, 4 sided, with each side tapering to a point. The bull point chisel for drilling into rock. Use it to gain accuracy when trying to remove specimens from the country rock. Maximum design hammer head weight: 3 lbs.
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%.
