Cheap wall hammers $30

Not my auction. No idea is they are any good, but for anyone who wants a just-in-case hammer, can't beat the price:

interesting

pick would be too short for crack/choss cleaning

old chouinard tools are pretty ideal for that

Got mine, still with the original bag and $150 price tag on it.  Very much on the light side, probably perfect as a just-in-case hammer for mostly clean walls.

Used to see a number of those hammers around here before they because "unavailable" as much of our gear seems to become.

My experience with them is that they serve as a good light use or occasional use hammer.  Good in areas like the Canadian Rockies where many less traveled routes, obscure routes, new routes, alpine climbs require pins.  Not really a hammer I'd want to use for drilling or for nailing all day but a good hammer in the same sense as the old Stubai shown below.



For $30 definitely a good deal though.
