    Chipping hammers fall into the category of "destruction" compared to other types of hammers. Common in welding and some types of demolition, these hammers make it easy to take away seams and other material when fixing mistakes, making repairs, or upgrading a project. Since they take a lot of abuse, good chipping hammers need to withstand a lot of punishment. A high-quality head — ideally a one-piece, drop-forged body made of steel — is necessary to allow the tool to chip away at material. A comfortable, long rubber grip can help with leverage and the ergonomics of the swing, decreasing the chance of straining muscles in the process as well.
