The first user reviews of the Paulding Hammer have started pouring in. Here is what Sam S. shared with us via a comment about The Hammer:
I purchased one of the pre-production models of this hammer from Paulding and consider it the finest of my tools, and I have no light weight assembly of tools… with PB Swiss, Snap On, and Wiha but to name 3 other brands in my toolbox.
I love this hammer so much, that I ordered a 2nd one just in case John decides to stop making them as I can’t imagine he’s making a lot of money considering the time and materials that goes into one of these beauties. Go (no Run) out and get yourself one of these, but I have to warn you.. it will make all of your other tools jealous!

I have no problem with saving up a bit to pay for a quality manufactured and passionately made tool. – Cannibal
A very fine hammer, indeed! – Papaw
$130 for a custom made hammer with all those features is a real deal.
My hats off to John Paulding, a very nice hand crafted tool at a fair price, very rare.
Nice find ToolGuyd! Thanks – ArmChairDIY
That is definitely a beautiful – and useful – tool. The maker’s skill is highly evident, as is his attention to detail. – Will
