Sunday Stills ~ Hand Tools

Hammers are one of the most common and oldest hand tools. Like everything, they have evolved over the years. When I asked my husband for his oldest hand tool, he gave me this hammer. I thought, a hammer? How common & boring. It's actually pretty cool tho, and very aged. As soon as I started shooting it, the memories came back. It's the one hammer I can always find, and never want to use. He has had it forever, and doesn't remember how old it is. I know it's at least 25 years old, my husband had it when I met him. It's very heavy, and meant for driving nails while framing houses. It doesn't see much use these days, but if I ever need a hammer - I know I can at least find one!!

Very nice. It certainly looks like it's older than 25 years. Lovely shaped handle too.
