Update: MSR Tent Stake Hammer

This is a quick follow-up report on the prior posting about the MSR tent stake hammer. Realizing that the rear of the hammer head could cause material wear and tear when in a bag and panniers due to squared-off ends, yesterday I filed the stainless steel  pulling ends down into more benign curves. Now, the hammer is not likely to tear or rip something else in my panniers. I first used a medium-course hand file to achieve the overall shape, and then a finer file to smooth it. The images:

Compare the rear pulling end to the photos of it in the prior April 19th posting below.
