    This is a cousin to the tack hammer I just posted. A beautiful tool, I have never seen another like it. There are no maker's marks and the hammer is 9 3/4" long. Does anyone have a clue to its age and use?

      It's called a ball peen hammer. It is used in metal working. It may not be that old. This style hammer is very common and still in use today.

      I always enjoy tools and especially hammers. I have about 14 ball peen hammers and one identical to this one. This one is for light work. My biggest one is either 4 or 6 pounds and was used in a locomotive shop just after WWII.

      Thanks for sharing it.
