What to do with this hammer

Recommended Posts

I can't remember what kind of hammer this is called, I know I've seen it on here before but I just can't remember. Anyway, any thoughts on a use for it? It definitely needs some tlc, I haven't weighed it but it's at least 2.5 lbs maybe 3.

The Hammer is called 'Monkey Wrench', two different sizes. Or do you mean the lump with the stick.

Looks like a hammer used to drive the drill into rock by early stonemasons. Seen a few of those used by convicts to cut into sandstone.
