A lump hammer

A lump hammer or club hammer is a small sledgehammer whose relatively light weight and short handle allow single-handed use.[1] It is useful for light demolition work, driving masonry nails, and for use with a steel chisel when cutting stone or metal.[2] In this last application, its weight drives the chisel more deeply into the material being cut than lighter hammers.
