An alternative to the tack hammer is a cross-peen hammer. The head of this hammer has two striking faces: one is flat; the other, the peen, is rounded and tapered. The tapered peen lets you hold a small nail in place to start it without hitting your fingers. Head weights range from 3-1/2 to 12 ounces. Handles range from 10-1/2 to 15 inches long.
