    To begin with, this hammer was note made for professional use. It is doubtful that you will be able to frame a house with it or do any major fencing project. No, it is a little hammer that is to be used around the house and for specific projects you might have. I personally build bird houses. The houses I build are not the ultra fancy ginger bread style of house (I like them but do not have the skill for such work), nor are the mammoth houses you would use for wood ducks or other big critters. My house is more of the bluebird kind of thing…pretty rough and pretty primitive. Anyway, I find that a large standard sized hammer is just too much hammer and that he little tack hammer is simply not enough.

    Now I have been digging through my various tool boxes, drawers, kitchen cabinets and such and discovered I have several of these hammers stashed about and close (Physically) relatives have more; all different brands. I thought I would do a bit of comparison.

    The hammer being reviewed here is the Great Neck 21000 8 oz with the magnetic nail starter and rubber type handle. I compared this with the Maxcraft 60626 8 ox hammer and the Sheffield 58550 8 oz hammer. Overall all three hammers performed almost identical and are doing the jobs I paid them to do. There are a couple of things to note about this hammer and indeed, the other hammers.

    First, these are ideal to have laying around the house for doing minor nailing jobs. My wife, who is a never ending remodeler, uses them all of the time. These hammers were built for smaller hands and my wife does indeed have much smaller hands than I do. She loves using these things.

    Second, there is very little difference is the measurements of these three hammers and these small differences are extremely subtle. All have the magnetic nail starter grove on the head and all three are quite well balanced. Being a very short hammer the majority of the weight is located on the head of the hammer which is as it should be to be effective.

    I found the grip of the Great Neck 21000 to be extremely comfortable as does my wife, but do keep in mind that we do not use this hammer for hours on end. It is used for rather quick jobs. When I build a bird house I may use 10 nails at the very most…this is not a big nailing job. I have found that even with the short handle, if you coke up on the grip you still have plenty of weight for striking force and you can make your blows extremely accurate.

    The price of the Great Neck and the Maxcraft are just about the same. The Sheffield 58550 is from two to three dollars more. As these hammers are quite alike I suspect you are paying just a bit more for the Sheffield simply due to the brand name. I personally could not tell all that much difference in the three.

    This is a handy little hammer to have around and I have absolutely no complaints.

    I love this little hammer. It only weighs 8 oz. The colors are a vibrant blue and yellow. The handle has a rubberized grip that gives you total control and non-slippage. The magnetic nail starter is also nice. Overall I love it and highly recommend it.

    My daughter purchased a short-handled hammer at a dollar store and used it for years before losing it out of her pocket in a rush to get inside her truck. I could not find a replacement in local stores so I searched the Internet. After a lengthy search of many Internet sites I believe Amazon is the only one who has it. I purchased three hammers; two for her and one for me. She put one in her pickup and the other she has in her toolbox on the truck. She uses the hammer everyday to check the air in the tires of her long-haul diesel truck. This style of hammer works especially well for that purpose and it is barely noticeable in her hand if she should need to use it as a weapon.
