SLATER'S HAMMER - Stortz Model 83-B (Right-Handed) or 83C (Left-Handed)
 
Right or Left Handed (select below)
 
A slate hammer is a necessary tool for any slate roofer.  It’s lightweight, multi-purpose, and is easily used on the roof.  The major functions of a slate hammer are to cut and trim slate, punch holes in slate, and to drive nails during installation. Cutting thicker slates (greater than a quarter inch) is also possible with the use of a hammer and stake . This slate hammer is not meant to be used to hit the back on a slate ripper to remove slate. Use a slaters restoration hammer for beating on rippers such as the  Freund 00114001 Roofers Hammer.
  • A. A checkered face allows for less grazing and slips when hitting nails. 
  • B. The point of a hammer is used for punching holes into pieces of slate.
  • C. The double sided nail claw is versatile both ways to remove nails.
  • D. The beveled shank is used for trimming slate in combination with a slater's stake.
  • E. A bell patterned leather handle provides comfortable to grip.
