I think it's preference I like the feel of a wooden handle hammer, I like the top heavy weight especially for a framing hammer, becomes down to what you feel comfortable working with.

Wow, those are some pricey hammers.  I am going to assume that if you use them everyday though and that is your lively hood it is more justifiable.  I'll just stick with my Estwing for now, it is at the top end of my price range for a hammer!  So as a guy that uses a hammer maybe a couple times a week is all, why are the stilletto's so pricey?  I have never used one, so I am curious to know what the differences are between say a stilleto and an Estwing since I have one as a reference.

I had a college teacher that used a stilleto.... He had the one with the changeable face it had a side nail puller, light weight and that's about it.... I have an estwing and I also have a side nail puller and its still fairly light so I don't see why I would spend that much on a stilleto

Stilettos are basically the standard for framers really plus you get what you pay for bassically a hammer that will last you a long time life time warranty plus its good for your elbow if your swinging an estwing all day your elbows gonna be fucked after years plus the stilettos swing really nice and there are the cheaper stilettos like a woode. One and fiber glass one but the tibone is really the standard plus solid one peice frame and side pry but ya i really want a tibone stiletto just gotta save up but ya im swinging a shitty dewalt and i hate it
