Have been hearing a lot from different places and a couple of carpenters about the Stiletto titanium hammers. After swinging a steel Estwing for most of the last 28 years I would like to know others opinions of the Stiletto hammers with the hickory handles. I am looking at the 14oz. I have seen both good and bad reviews and would like some input from the carpenters here. I have had cortisone shots in my right elbow in the past and don't want to repeat that experience! Do the Stilettos really help? Any other hammer you would recommend for shock resistance? I do prefer a hickory handle if I am going to switch.
Thanks for your help!
