Claw hammer is described as a nail hammer , for driving and removing nails. The claw should be shaped in a continuous curve and tapered to grip the nail firmly, so that the maximum grip and leverage can be obtained. A quality claw hammer will grip a nail even if the head has been damaged or broken off. Claw hammer is a nailing hammer and should never be used for striking cold chisels or masonry nails.
