Forge Steel Fibreglass Sledge Hammer 10lb
Can't go wrong at Â£10
Bought this in the sale for less than Â£10. For that kind of money it's an absolute bargain. The maul is sharper and has a narrower profile than the roughneck equivalent (I have both, but the roughneck head is working loose after many years of abuse). I like this forge steel maul because the sharpness of the blade enables you to spilt really awkward shapes that, if you use the duller blade of the roughneck, tend to bounce off.
Seems well made, but can't really tell how long it will last. If it does the c.7 years my roughneck did then I'll be very pleased.

The right weight
Not a bad hammer but in my opinion you can't beat a quality hickory handled sledge hammer, a good easy weight for all day use knocking retaining board pegs in, a bit pricey as far as hammers go though

a big hammer
What can I say? I bought this to knock some round posts in to the ground and they went in fine. Just the right weight for most jobs.
It feels well made and was nicely packaged to prevent damage of other items in transit.
I bit of a bargain really.

Does the job
I bought this to knock down a concrete wall. Did the job. I also used the Â£59.99 9" angle grinder bought from screwfix too (titan i think it was). i'd recommend that too (only i wasnt asked to leave a review on that item!)
Anyway, good sledge hammer. Didnt break. Can't estimate how long it'll last but i reckon a long time (broke my dads wooden sledge hammer trying to knock the wall down, the head fell off the wood so i'd say this fibreglass one is more reliable)
