I've had many conversations about hammers with so many I can't keep track of them all. I have an inkling of who the forum member is but not 100% sure. I hope your return address is correct.
This is great and will fit in very nicely into the collection. I can't say if this is the oldest one in the collection but it is the in the best shape of all the oldies that's for sure.
Thank you almost mystery person, this is awesome. You made my week. Thank you so much.

Canadian Treasure for sure!
While I know the real name of the person who sent this, can you pm me your forum name just to make sure I think I know who you are? Thanks.
I could take a guess as to the donor's name but there are so many good Canadians Forum Members to choose from.
One can really appreciate a quality tool that has survived the ravages of time and constructive use.
I'ld grab that one before reaching for a Harbor Freight model hoping the cumulative zen of former craftsmen's use would flow through the handle and have me strike true.
Talk about a lost art. Back as a kid we lived in town for the first 8 years of my life and dad had a pal who ran the local hardware store. It was a cool place I used to love going with him to. They had a big rack with all sorts of different hammers for sale and right along side of it was a rack of just hammer handles. There was an older guy there if you brought your broken hammer to and bought the handle he would install it for free. I loved watching him do it and he had a nice belt sander for fitting the new handle into the socket and all the various wedges and when he finished the hammer was just like new again. Don't think you could find this service these days in many places and it is actually pretty rare to even see the replacement handles in any of the big box stores with any real variety like this old hardware store carried. Big hammers and splitting mauls were the ones he replaced mostly but dad brought in a few of his carpenter and ball peen ones and got new handles on them just so I could watch. I guess today if you break a handle you just toss the head and go buy a new hammer which really is a shame.
