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 13" long with a 7-1/2" head, and weighs 22 ounces.
The increased weight, length and head size, as compared to the 14 oz. hammer/pick, gives better 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.
