This hammer isn't sharp enough.

Actually my opinion is that the hammer is plenty sharp, regardless of the intended meaning of "sharp." If it refers to the claw edge of the hammer, since it is an obviously new hammer, the claw is most likely pretty sharp and has not been chipped away at all by the removal of hardened nails. If "sharp" refers to the picture clarity, I find that it is quite sharp, providing nice crisp lines on the metal and a definite outline of the primary subject.
I suppose that if by "sharp" the intent was intelligence, the hammer would not qualify as a Nobel Prize winner, however I suspect that the hammer in question is every bit as intelligent as another hammer of similar quality.

actually, it was referring to the claw edge, which was being used for chiseling of a key. The chiseling was not going as well as had been hoped for, hence the quote of it not being sharp enough.

But I would still argue that the claw edge is as sharp as can be expected for a tool such as this one. Perhaps it would have made more sense to state the this tool is not the proper one for the task at hand. When chiseling, a tool such as a 'chisel' would be most recommended.

Also I am bored and enjoy the prospect of arguing semantics with you.

oh, I agree that a chisel would have been more appropriate of a tool, but what we had on-hand was a hammer. Additionally, there was no statement being made of the appropriateness of the tool for the job, simply of the adequacy of the sharpness of the hammer for the task at hand -- or, rather, the lack thereof.
