The Plumb Wood Handled Prospecting Hammer is a great tool for prospectors and geologists. It features a strong hickory handle and a forged head. The hammer has a Permabond® construction between head and handle, to ensure they always stay together. The head is finished with a durable epoxy powder, and the face is polished and chamfered. A great choice for any professional that needs to work with rocks. Warning: when operating, always ensure both user and bystanders are wearing safety goggles.
