Item M17 - D. Maydole Claw Hammer.
Maydole of Norwich, NY is generally credited with the invention of the adze eye
hammer—an aid to keep the handle from working loose. The vast majority of
Maydole hammers that you see are in the adze eye form. This one, however, is of
the plain eye type and appears to be a much less common form. It is a hefty 24
oz plain face hammer with the familiar, “D. MAYDOLE / CAST STEEL” mark. The top
of the claw is indented with a nail head mark, probably to better seat the nail
in the claw. The handle is long, extending 16 ˝ inches below the head.
Apparently original, it has been split at the bottom and is wrapped with
electrician’s tape as a repair. The head has no rust or pitting and suffers
only some light scratches. Good+
