The head of this tool has a rock hammer on one end and a pick on the other, minimizing the pieces of equipment you need to carry in the field. It is 12.5" long with a 7" head, and weighs 13 ounces.
The length and head size gives a good leverage for digging out rock samples. This top-of-the-line Estwing Combination Hammer/Pick features a head and handle forged of a single piece of steel, making it one of the safest and finest tools available. The vinyl-cushioned handle makes it easier to grip.
