Review of the Stanley FatMax Xtreme Antivibe Rip Claw Nailing Hammer

A new hammer review from Stanley's long line of FatMax Xtreme hand tools.

When I first picked up the Stanley FatMax rip claw nailing hammer at my local home improvement center, I found it to be a good balanced weight. Its shaft was supposed to be ergonomically designed but to me it just felt different from normal hammer designs I have used in the past and I new it would require some getting used to. The shaft itself is slightly curved upwards. Apparently, this is to alleviate stress on the elbow and wrist. To me it seemed to complicate the issue somewhat. After I hammered in a few nails with it, I found it to be the contrary. It did indeed help prevent stress to my joints. After a few weeks of using the 20 oz. Stanley FatMax Xtreme Antivibe rip claw nailing hammer, I found it worked better for driving in large nails without causing nearly half as much stress as a conventional hammer would, it just took some getting used to.

As for its patented antivibe shock absorbing handle, it definitely had done its job effectively. It took away a lot of the impact that a steel shank hammer would have normally been absorbed by my arm and joints. Although they are keeping it a secret, I think that the steel shank must be filled with composites and possibly wood or foam. I have used several hammers that claim to have shock-absorbing handles but are easily broken due to the thinning of the handles interior and filling them with softer materials.

The shank of the 20 oz. Stanley FatMax Xtreme Antivibe rip claw nailing hammer is a solid steel shank that makes for a very strong handle and shank. It seems to me that this hammer will last heavy use for a long time or normal use for a lifetime. I normally don't buy steel shank hammers due to their shock on the bones when I strike them hard against wood or concrete, but the steel shank is designed to pull the shock away from the arm and into the hand. I did find my grip did become a little sore after a days worth of hard work but it saved my elbow and forearm the painful effects of hammer shock that a conventional steel shank hammer causes.

The hammer has one more neat feature that I have seen on a lot of framing hammers, but rarely on a 20 oz. hammer. The tip of the head has a grove built into it so a nail can sit in the top of the head held in by a magnet. This is so you can set a nail hands free. This really comes in handy for hard to reach high places that need nailing or if you're holding a board with one hand.

Over all I would say the 20 oz. Stanley FatMax Xtreme Antivibe rip claw nailing hammer is a great improvement over most hammers if not all of them. It's definitely the best steel shank hammer I have ever bought. It's a great buy and doesn't cost too much more than most hammers. I found mine on sale at my local home improvement store.
