Rolson 10019 Stubby Claw Hammer UK Review
This is our review of the very popular Rolson 10019 Stubby Claw Hammer. For under £5 this is a great wee hammer to have in your toolbox, or in a drawer around your home. Most people will probably own a full size hammer, and usually that is a claw style anyway.
This one is smaller, lighter and can actually do most jobs around the home. This is also a great choice for those who tend to whack their fingers with the bigger sized hammer.
You can see from the image above, that this one is ideal to be gripped with the fingers, and yet small enough to be able to hammer in restricted areas. Personally I use this one a great deal more than I thought I would, when I first bought it. I don't want to say it is cute, but it has become quite a favourite.
You can also be a lot more precise with this one, thanks to the size of it. It is a nice weight as well and I know that this is the one that my wife will always use. Thankfully not on me though!
If you pulled this one out on a building site, then no doubt, you would never live it down. I can tell you though, that for small jobs around the home, this is pretty much an ideal hammer.

Our Verdict on the Rolson 10019 Stubby Claw Hammer
You don't get much these days for around £5. You certainly can not buy that many good quality tools for that sort of money. This small hammer is handy to have in your tool bag, or to have in a drawer inside the house.
It is really handy for putting a few nails into the wall, and for doing most lightweight hammering tasks around the home. You wouldn't use something like this for major work or for the tough jobs. For those you would need a full sized claw hammer.
For under £5, and with a very high 4.8 out of 5 star rating, it is very hard to go wrong with this one. Personally I think it is ideal for most homes, and definitely for those who tend to whack their fingers with the larger hammers.
