  1. Sure the hammer is a POS, but look how numb-nuts bent it. At first I thought he’d missed the nail and hit the handle, bending it. Nope. Look at the background, he’s taking out a wall or built-in cabinet. The gorilla bent that POS pulling a nail. Get a better hammer AND a pry bar Harambe.

  2. I’ve got 30 year old estwings I have abused in every imaginable way and still good to go. Buy the best tool you can afford first. Although a 28 oz estwing didn’t survive a CAT tracked mulcher. My fault there.

  3. Still have my Grandfathers Sears Craftsman 16 oz straight claw, wooden handle. I break it out every now and then to drive a nail, still the original handle. Yea Daddy Calvin I have it…

  4. Who knows, I have had to modify tools many times as a field service mechanic
    and Millwright. Maybe the guy needed to bend it for some limited clearance issue.
    If the only thing stopping me from completing a job was the lack of a tappet wrench,
    I would hit the customer’s maintenance shop and grind it down. I’ve even taken
    a long 3/8″ handle Allen wrench and turned it into push-rod for an unloader on
    a gas compressor because the customer lacked a replacement.

    However, in this case, the idiot probably used it as a prybar on something VERY
    heavy. To paraphrase our host Phil, one can never have enough hammers. Each
    type of hammer has its own use. Using a hammer to replace a five-foot prybar
    is not one of them!

    My favorite gag at work was to hand a coworker my 4-ounce Vaughn ball-peen
    hammer if he asked to borrow a hammer. The people who spent time cutting
    gaskets will understand this. If you meet a guy with a tiny ball-peen hammer,
    several rat-tail files and a bag of assorted cork stoppers in his toolbox, he is
    a Millwright.

    • When I see things like this, I’m reminded that some people can not only break an anvil in a sandbox, but then lose one of the pieces.

  5. Hell I’ve got a smooth faced Vaughn framing hammer that still has the original wooden handle. Had it over thirty years and beat a million nails in with that thing. Never used as a prying tool, NEVER !

  6. Keep it around and to give to people who ask, “Can I borrow a hammer?”
    And also give them the rusty chisel I see at the bottom of the photo.

    I might start putting together a small loaner toolbox of utterly f**ked up tools for those certain people who don’t own tools, nor respect them.
