#mystilettostory …
Upon spreading the news that I would be starting framing, a friend who had left the trade offered his stiletto to me. Others I knew in the trade had spoken greatly of these hammers so naturally I accepted the gift (14 oz pictured) thinking “a hammer is a hammer”. It didn’t take long for me to realize that materials, design, and weight played into the swing. So a couple years later when I snapped the claw setting forms, I picked up another stiletto on the way home (16oz pictured). Guys on the crew didn’t think the wood handle was worthy of framing. But I n the 4+ years swings a stiletto woody I snapped 2 handles. The first because the moisture in the handle froze making the fibers brittle, and the second, when I tried to put a screw🤦🏼‍♂️. #mystory #stilettotools #titanium #hammer •
