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 Picard 0079010 Roofers Hammer.
