I need to knacker a wall and im looking for a sledge hammer with a pointed end. I cant find one though, they all have flat heads on both sides.

My dad used to have a sledge hammer with a point so im pretty sure they exist. Anyone know where i can buy one?

Sledgehammers are not really the way to take a wall down, more for smashing up concrete.

Use a long wrecking bar, the wall will come down in safe, controlled stages.
Don't forget safety glasses - only one pair of eyes :)

Its an outdoor wall. Its made of concrete and large stones, i was thinking about using the pointed edge of the hammer to destroy the concrete then let the large stones wall out on their own, maybe splitting them up later.

So true, gonna get a hard hat and goggles too, bob the builder style ;)

Peter Gabriel does a great sledgehammer.
You could have a steam train
If you'd just lay down your tracks
You could have an aeroplane flying
If you bring your blue sky back

All you do is call me
I'll be anything you need

You could have a big dipper
Going up and down, all around the bends
You could have a bumper car, bumping
This amusement never ends

I want to be your sledgehammer with a pointed end
Why don't you call my name
Oh let me be your sledgehammer with a pointed end
This will be my testimony
Show me round your fruitcage
'cos I will be your honey bee
Open up your fruitcage
Where the fruit is as sweet as can be

I want to be your sledgehammer with a pointed end
Why don't you call my name
You'd better call the sledgehammer with a pointed end
Put your mind at rest
I'm going to be-the sledgehammer with a pointed end
This can be my testimony
I'm your sledgehammer with a pointed end
Let there be no doubt about it

Sledge sledge sledgehammer with a pointed end

I've kicked the habit
Shed my skin
This is the new stuff
I go dancing in, we go dancing in
Oh won't you show for me
And I will show for you
Show for me, I will show for you
Yea, yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah, I do mean you
Only you
You've been coming through
Going to build that powerr
Build, build up that power, hey
I've been feeding the rhythm
I've been feeding the rhythm
Going to feel that power, build in you
Come on, come on, help me do
Yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah, you
I've been feeding the rhythm
I've been feeding the rhythm
It's what we're doing, doing
All day and night

Go buy yourself a Club (Lump)Hammer 2.5lb or 4lb & 12" cold chisel, or hire a small demolition breaker, & don't forget the eye protection, steel toe cap boots.
It will be hard work doing it by hand, you will find muscles you didn't know exsisted.

How long & high is this wall?
