Hammer (400-800 gr) used by the slater when covering or repairing a slate roof. It is a composite tool that has a pointed end on one side - which punch holes for the nails in the slates - and on the other side a hammer end that drives the slate nails into the wood. In the middle, between the two ends, there may be a pear-shaped cutout with which nails can be pulled out.
Another possibility is that there is a protrusion with a V-shaped cutout at the top. Between the working part and the hammer handle there is - on one or both sides - a sharp side with which the slates are cut to size. This is done with the help of a slater's stake. [MOT]
