Got this a while back at a flea market. Does anyone know what it is used for?

I collect hammers . I have that one . I figured it was a masons brick hammer but could also maybe be tin knocker. Nice handle.

Stone masson chipping hammer? You can make vertical or horizontal cuts without turning the stone. Just flip over the hammer. Hope i guessed right.

Years and years ago my dad and I built a couple of stone retainer walls along the back yard. Had to chip off ends or edges of field stones here and there to make things fit. He just used a straight masson hammer but as soon as I saw this picture things just went BOING! That is the hammer we should of had! Brick sidewalks and such I used a brick chisel. You use one of those 2 lb. engineer or mini maul hammers that look like a minny sledge hammer. Take the brick chisel and make a firm tap with the hammer. You get a score line. Go all of the way around the brick. Now under the brick you want a very sturdy piece of oak planking or such. This allows the brick to fracture correctly. Finally take the chisel back on the first score line and give it a really good wack straight up and down. If the brick is of good quality it should fracture with almost a perfect straight face. You will need a little practice. You will really smile when you do it right. You can always cheat and rent or buy a water feed tile saw. I have also used diamond blades on an angle grinder but WOW do they ever make dust!! The tile saw is nice and clean. One more thought. You can also use an air hammer chisel like they use in auto body shops. Go to HF and they have several types. Some come with a complete set of tools and they are really cheap. When you first try it turn the air flow way down and work your way up till you get it. This is how I cleand several loads of used bricks. You end up breaking several till you get the hang of it. When you are really cooking along you can do about a brick per minute averaging easy and hard together.

That's what I was thinking but was not sure. The others I have seen only had a chipping edge on one side and a flat face on the other. Thanks for the responses.
