A slate hammer is a necessary tool for any slate roofer.  It’s lightweight, multi-purpose, and is easily used on the roof.  The major functions of a slate hammer are to cut and trim slate, punch holes in slate, and to drive nails during installation. Cutting thicker slates (thicker than a quarter inch) is also possible with the use of a hammer and stake . This slate hammer is not meant to be used to hit the back on a slate ripper to remove slate. Use a slaters restoration hammer for beating on rippers such as the Freund 00114001 Roofers Hammer.
  • A checkered face allows for less grazing and slips when hitting nails. 
  • The point of a hammer is used for punching holes into pieces of slate.
  • The double sided nail claw is versatile both ways to remove nails.
  • The beveled shank is used for trimming slate in combination with a slater's stake.
  • A bell patterned leather handle provides comfortable to grip.
