The BelOMO 15x Triplet Loupe magnifier has a viewing area of 0.38in (9mm). The 3 elements making up this achromatic triplet provide a bright and clear view. The 15x power magnification provides a nice level of magnification, good depth of field (the area that appears in focus on an object having an irregular surface like a rock or mineral). The lens glass isn't as large, wide, as the famous BelOMO 10x Triplet Loupe Magnifier but there's still lots of light for a very bright view when you need or want just more magnification than the BelOMO 10x Triplet Loupe Magnifier but not as much magnification as the BelOMO 20x Quadruplet Magnifier.
The housing and cover are coated with a matte black finish and assembled using flathead screws. Screws allow you to adjust the swing tension to your liking. Belarusian 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! The BelOMO loupes are the loupes we always use though it's the 10x that we typically carry in the field. The 15x has a more magnification with a good field of view. But the magnification is just too much for the field so it's the BelOMO 10x Triplet Loupe Magnifier carry.
Don't let this price fool you. The BelOMO loupe is a FANTASTIC buy. These are quality lenses that stand on their own against the higher priced competition. Take advantage of the recovering Belarus economy and a military supplier finding other revenue streams in a capitalistic market.
Each BelOMO loupe we ship is custom treated to prevent the screws from coming loose with usage.

Estwing has replaced the leather sheath with nylon sheaths manufactured with the same basic design.
Estwing Leather Sheath for Pointed Tip Rock Hammers
New model. The sheath now has a "relaxed fit" making it easier to use in the field as well as working with more hammers.
Fits Estwing Pointed Tip Rock Hammers. Now fits the Estwing Supreme 24oz Big Face Pointed Tip Rock Hammer and the Valley Soft-Touch 20oz Pointed Tip Rock Hammer.
Leather snap case for the Estwing 24 oz, 22 oz, 13 oz, and 14 oz Rock Picks. Difficult to use until well broken in. We recommend the Gfeller Casemakers sheaths and holsters, especially the holsters. The Gfeller sheaths are sized better and their also pre-shaped to fit the hammers.
(I placed this on the site when the sheathshad a tight fit. It's still handy information." Hint: to make it easier to use this sheath use products like Vaseline, mink oil, saddle soap and even soap to help break it in. If you've recently broken in a baseball glove you may have some Rawlings Glovolium and Easton Glove oil around. Don't over do it. Do a web search on breaking in a baseball glove to find out how they do it.
I still don't recommend using the Estwing Leather Sheaths in any case. I sell them because some customers insist on having a sheath to protect things from the hammers. They're OK for storage but Amateur Geologist never carries one into the field. Use a holster.
Did I mention that these sheaths are just too difficult to use.
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.

All new design for the lanyard. The lanyard can now be install and removed without tools.
Softer design with double sided logo. Most lanyards have the logo on one side only.
We sell a lot of loupes to customers who have lost their loupe in the field. Using a lanyard keeps the loupe handy and with you rather than sitting near that last rock you examined. Now.... where was that?
Here is a heavy duty 3/4" nylon loupe lanyard with a quick release buckle. Disconnect the buckle when you don't need the neck lanyard. But don't set the loupe down and walk way!
This lanyard may be used for any purpose but we've had it custom manufactured specifically for use with the BelOMO loupe. Open the buckle to remove and swing the BelOMO loupe open to remove to lanyard. Open the buckle, swing the loupe open, slip the the long side of the buckle around the post, close the buckle and close the loupe and the lanyard is installed.<
