Item M5 - Stortz & Son (Philadelphia) Leather Handle Slater’s Hammer. 

One of the more prominent makers of slater’s tools, John Stortz’s firm worked in Philadelphia from 1853 to 1972.  The “& Son” mark was first used in the very early 1900s, when this tool was likely made.  It is in much better condition than you usually see them, having a good solid handle of leather rings and no pitting or cracks.  It has been little used.  The head is 9 ˝” long from peen to point and the handle is about 12” long.  A touch that I can’t remember seeing before is a brass or bronze nut at the bottom of the handle to tighten the leather rings.  Fine
