The Vaughan California Framer combines features of two of our most popular tools into a rugged, heavy construction hammer. The smoothly swept claws were borrowed from our "999" Rip Hammer, and the extra large striking face, hatchet eye and sturdy handle are a heritage of our Rigbuilder's Hatchet. The hatchet style handle is best grade, second growth hickory. To provide extra strength, the handle has a large cross section where it joins the fully polished head. Rust-resistant powder coat finish. MADE IN USA.
