My personal recommendation is for the Estwing 28 oz, but barring that,
I'd choose the Estwing 22 oz. If you're not looking for a framing
hammer, I'd choose the Estwing 16 oz straight claw. A good
mini-sledge is the Estwing 3# drilling hammer. For roofing, you can't
beat the Estwing roofing hatchet. For the woodsy type, the Estwing
camp axe is the way to go.
Notice a pattern?
Seriously, the steel, uh, shaft, on your Estwing will never get nicked
or dented. The only problem that I've noticed is that when you've got
a veeery stubborn nail to pull *sideways,* the shaft can bow just a
little. I'll tell you this, though: I'll never own another hammer.
