The Most Elegant of Hammers
- I've put it through the wringer
I bought this hammer on a whim, but also because it looks like a hammer Apple would make if they did make hammers. It does have a beauty to it. The hammer though does what it needs to do. It will hammer in tent stakes. I use MSR Groundhogs and it does the job on those. It also can pull them out too, like, you know, A HAMMER. And now we come to my two complaints about it. One is justifying its existence in your backpack. Sure, a rock isn't awesome to use for getting tent stakes in, but it also isn't something you have to carry with you in your backpack that weighs over half a pound and takes up space. The other complaint I have is long term durability. The handle is hollow and the head is bound to it by a single pin. It feels very sturdy, but I don't know how long that pin is going to hold for. I wouldn't say you have to have this hammer, and it does feel frivolous to me, but it's the lightest and most elegant hammer I've ever owned, and let me tell you, there was stiff competition for that honor. If you're going for ultralight, you're not on this product page, even considering this thing, but if you want some convivence with getting your tent stakes in and out with some minor weight and volume cost, you could do worse than this hammer.

proper tool for the job
- I've used it several times
When car and river camping, I've smashed my fingers/hands using rocks to bash in tent stakes. And when I've been smart enough to have a coleman/coghlans plastic mallet--they've shredded when banging into rocky ground. Enter the MSR stake hammer--small enough, light enough and just the right tool for the job. And if a friend miss-hits a stake, I don't have to cry because they took a chunk of wood out of my hults handle...

No more rocks!
One the best tools weâve added to the cache box for car camping. No longer digging around camp for a suitable rock for some cave-Woman action. Best part, itâs saved me from ripping out the stake loops and grommets from my tent. I works super well to easily pull stakes out. Must have.

the cool Factor
- I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions
Sure any old hammer will do, but why not have a cool looking one? this MSR stake hammer is just cool looking and very useful around camp with it's bottle opening skills to it's ability to hammer in tent stakes. and the many other endless uses. the only thing I did not like about it was the lack of grip in the handle, It has a ruff surface but could use better grip. I am going to wrap it with some bike handle bar Tape and that should give it the grip.
