« on: May 07, 2012, 08:11 PM »
Has anyone in the uk tried one of the stilleto Tibone hammers? I have just bought one for £65 and have not tried it yet. At the moment I use a 24 estwing..

Cheers john..

You tried it out yet?  When I was looking at hammers to buy years ago I looked at stilettos.  I decided to go with estwing.   

I lost my estwing and had another look at stilleto but again went with a estwing cus thought I could loose the stiletto just as easy as my old estwing.   I now use the estwing hammer tooth.  But if the stilettos are  Good then maybe I might consider it next time over estwing.

Think there's a Stilleto combo for $US250 - bag, hammers and bits ... I was going to quiz them on how much direct to Oz but haven't got round to it yet.

Yeh - Estwings in the stable for now too.

It got delivered yesterday to my hotel room, it cost $99 from Amazon.com.I can't try it yet unless I go hitting things in the hotel room with it [big grin]  It does feel light but is seems very long to compared the the Estwing..

To keep then guessing at customs I think you also need some binoculars, an inflatable chicken and a traditional stethoscope.

I'm in Orlando.. The iPad was $499 (£328 inc tax) I think the allowance to bring back is £390 each, so I have to fit things in my girlfriends bag [big grin]

I'm still under the customs allowance.. It just means my girlfriend can't buy anything.. The iPads for her anyhow, I just have to be the one who pays for it  [unsure]
 As soon as I get home I will be sticking the iPad 1 on eBay..
