Well....maybe tomorrow we can figure out which one you're talking about. I suspect you are looking at a struck tool rather than a hammer. Probably the top fuller. The one with the really long handle, on the top of the heap, is a hot cut. Ic you ard drooling nover the top fuller, you are out of luck. Its a 1/2" Heller Bros, in really good shape, with the horse logo. A definite keeper.

The first one is the Heller Bros. top fuller. The second one is the hot cut. Although the fuller is used for drawing out primarily, it can also be used as a struck tool. The hot cut is exclusively a struck tool. And by no means think I have a handle on all of this, I am learning as I go along.

The ones i thought were Warringtons are not, the ones you have have an angled head parallel to the main axis. Warrington's have the angled portion of the head at right angles.

These are what I'm looking for. I have a vintage one.

Ah....ok...never heard the term "Warrington". And your original terminology, "straight pein" is probably accurate as well. I just naturally assumed the more common variety because of the word "large" in your comment. Both of these hammers have the heads dressed at a slight convex with rolldd edges. Its the head shape/smoothness I prefer on a cross pein. The unhandled one has no markings. If you really want it, I'll ship it off to you for twenty bucks. I'd go cheaper, but I overpaid for it at 15. It had a split handle that I didn't noticenuntil I cleaned it up. The handled one I don't want to part with.
