    i do like the magnet as it allows you to reach overhead and start a nail.

    problem with titanium is it's too soft and us plumbers don't use hammers like the framers. the checkered cross hatch is now flattened like a mashed potato

    we pound iron and concrete.

          Some 20 years ago I did construction work in one of the large US military academies as a subcontractor. Obscenely good money.

          In 1988 the main contractor would charge the academy $600 for a hammer (and he got paid) that was nowhere near as nice as this one.

              Don't forget the $7,000 coffee pot, and $180 "Emergency Lighting System" (flashlight).

                I think you guys would understand the truth behind those inflated prices if you watched the documentary "Independence Day" with Will Smith.

                    Even if you don't use the hammer to drive every nail the weight of the titanium hammers are substantially less than that of hammers with the same striking power made of steel and wood. I have problems with both of my hips so as much weight as I can keep off my belt the better, and if it costs me $300 for a one time investment to keep my hips in decent shape than thats something I will absolutly pay for.
