Show me your Hammers

Found this over the weekend
Have never seen a ball peen with a leather handle. Thought it was an Estwing but handle says MALCO.
Google doesn't show any other examples of a ball peen with a leather handle.

Finer Veritas (including their Journeyman brass mallets) and Grace to be found in one of the drawers:

Here's my bench stuff now (omitting sledges and hatchets).  From left to right:
- Modern Stanley AntiVibe hammer, does indeed work pretty good!
- Just got here from Grainger... A British joiner's hammer or Warrington hammer, very cool.  You don't see many in the USA.
- My reliable Craftsman ball-peen.
- The 2-lb ball-peen from G-G-Father which I re-handled, modifying an ACE H/W handle.
- A cross-peen hammer which I handled from scratch hickory, probably my favorite of all these for how it feels and swings.
- A reliable rawhide mallet.




How about yours?

A little diversion here...

Last summer's Avengers movie had a pretty cool scene where Thor's new forged hammer needed a handle.  I have since been re-handling some handles and very much enjoying the process.

I am ugly -- but my nephew got the movie-star looks.   Prior to Christmas Story, prior to Night Stalker, Darren McGavin had a "Thor" encounter of sorts.  Anyway, this represents me giving a re-hung vintage hammer to my "Thor" nephew.   He does have quite the handy mechanical aptitude and I think he's going to like the vintage tool:

   
   

Happy woodworking!

Speaking of hammers, I can’t find my Veritas brass plane hammer anywhere. If any of you borrowed it, please put it back.
