shouldn't he use a hammer like any other toolsmith?

it doesn't really have any in-game effect, but i just discovered it and it's bugging me

that is a question where the answer is buried in the past. Maybe it even drowned with Atlantis. face-wink.png
Honestly I believe it was the designers choice to make him making tools by mainly sawing things so precisely they won't need much force to make a tool.
If you want to know for sure you could write a PM to SirVer or Nasenbaer, maybe they can remember.

I like it, it brings diversity into the game.

and now i am picturing an atlantean toolsmith hammering stuff with the handle of the saw. and when people ask him why he won't get a hammer, the reply is "it's traditional. our ancestors have always done it since the sinking of atlantis"

little did they know, the water god sunk atlantis because he was disgusted by atlantean toolsmiths using a saw instead of an hammer. that, and putting pineapples on their pizza.

but seriously, it's fine. i like the explanation
