This hammer has been on my wish list for ages, but for $220-280 depending on vendor, it was just a wish list thing. Found it here on sale for about $50 less than the usual low end price and thought, "Just do it!" It felt a bit awkward at first, but within the first 15 minutes of use, it was like part of me. The lack of arm fatigue and the ability to drive nails is awesome. Day 1 of use was on a roof that the home owner should have left the cutting down of a large Maple to a professional. Smaller job so we hand nailed the shingles. 1-3/4" roofing nails required one set tap, and 1 swing to set each through 1/2 CDX, and a few that hit rafters needed a second whack, but if I had known which ones would be hitting rafters, I would have actually added a little "extra" to the swing and still did it in one. I have always been partial to Plumb hammers, because they were very well built and balanced, for very little cash. If I remember correctly, Plumb was known as "The Carpenter's Choice" back in the 70's. This Stiletto would have saved many sore arm days if I had only got it sooner. The amount of swing for the amount of drive produced it far better than any I have ever used. I know most of us use cordless or air nailers now-a-days, but for when we don't, or those who still do it the old fashioned way, this is the way to go, hands down.
Bought this for roofing/sheathing to replace my 20 oz. steel hammer after having some elbow problems. this is a seriously awesome hammer for someone used to huge framing hammers, but not my application. Overall weight is the SAME as my 20 oz. steel!!! Returned for a 12 oz. stiletto w/ poly which works better and is much lighter, but it is still a big hammer w/ long handle. If you need maximum hit, the big stilettos are for you - otherwise a 10 oz. stiletto w/ shorter handle might be the ticket for lighter duty jobs.
This product is warranted by Stiletto Tools for one (1) year from the date of purchase against defects in workmanship and materials, with proof of purchase. During the warranty period, Stiletto will repair or replace a defective product with a new or reconditioned part or product, depending on the availability at the time of replacement.
This warranty covers normal usage and does not cover damage which results from accident, misuse, abuse, vandalism, neglect or improper maintenance. The warranty does not cover damage which results from unauthorized repairs, alterations or modifications. This warranty does not cover damage to hammer which results from striking hammer against hardened steel tools, i.e. cat's paw, chisel, hardened nail, bolts, etc.
1. Any product being returned to Stiletto Tools must be accompanied by a "Stiletto Tools Warranty Claim" form with an RMA# on the form and on the box in which it is returned. This form will be faxed to you after calling us and stating the problem. The claim form must be filled out completely, stating the date of purchase and reason for the return. This form must accompany the product being returned with the RMA#.
2. Each time a customer returns a Stiletto product to a retail establishment for a warranty claim, the retail staff should do a preliminary analysis as to whether a new product should be given to the customer in exchange for the returned product. (For example, a missing magnet or a broken handle can easily be repaired and a new tool should not be given in exchange in such circumstances.)
3. While the qualities of lightweight Titanium can reduce fatigue and sore elbows, and has a better nail-gripping adhesion, it should not be struck upon hardened objects. This could result in damage to the face of the hammer. Our test results have shown that our hammer will not wear excessively from normal use with all types of common nails. Although some wear will occur, it would not significantly reduce the nail-gripping performance of the titanium hammer face.
All warranty claims must be called into Stiletto first, before any action will be taken. Failure to contact Stiletto will lead to delay in replacement, repair, or credit.
The majority of Warranty returns to Stiletto are for broken wooden handles, and an entire product is wrongly returned to us for an easily replaceable wooden handle, whereas truly defective Titanium heads are uncommon. This is why it is so important for a retailer carrying our hammers to stock our replacement handles.
For warranty claims of defective castings, ie. cracked or broken claws, casting voids, etc., our Customer Service Dept should be notified immediately of the claim @ (800) 987-1849, and an RMA # will be issued for return to Stiletto for review. Pending evaluation those verified claims would be credited back to the customer, and a credit memo copy sent via fax to the customer.
Providing the following information will enable us to better expedite the processing of your returns:
1. Stiletto RMA # clearly marked on product or return carton.
2. Stated reasons for return of product.
