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.
This is almost the same rock Hammer as the Estwing Supreme 22 oz Pointed Tip Rock Hammer E3-22P. The difference is the use of a leather handle rather than the vinyl handle. The leather grip is made of laminated leather "O" rings pressed then riveted to the shaft. The whole handle is then laminated. The leather grip makes this hammer aesthetically pleasing as well as a great field tool. The leather is factory coated with a varnish that wears off with use.
