Greg Schaumburg learned decades ago that there’s nothing like being a homeowner to make you appreciate the value of great tools.
“I bought my first Estwing claw hammer in the 90s after buying my first home. I had borrowed my uncle’s Estwing hammer and immediately noticed how well balanced and comfortable it was to use,” he said.
Over the years, Greg and his wife have remodeled three homes—from demo to finish work and everything in between. And he still swears nothing compares to the balance and comfortable grip of Estwing tools.
Greg’s favorite tool is his Estwing stone hammer. “It’s been my go-to while laying new bluestone patios and walkways at each of our homes. I’ve used it for splitting, shaping and dressing saw cuts. And it’s easy to spot no matter how dusty it gets.”
Greg plans to pass on more than a love of remodeling to his son.
“I’ve purchased a pair of Estwing hatchets, a deadblow and another general-use claw hammer as gifts for my son,” he said. “Now he’s got something in his own toolbelt when he’s ready to buy and start remodeling his own first home.”
After nearly 30 years, Greg still has that first Estwing hammer.
“It’s nice to own something solid that has a history of many projects and memories behind it,” Greg said. “Thanks for making something I’ve been able to use for a long time, has helped make a lot of fun places, and still has a lot of swing left in it yet.”
