This Fretz® jeweler’s planishing hammer wields the weight of a larger, all-metal head for heavier tasks but with the forgiving, fine touch of a nylon face that won’t mar your metal. Nylon inserts are secured by a set-screw. The set includes 11 inserts to provide a variety of shapes for a wide range of configurations ideal for raising, planishing and embossing work.
Designed by Bill Fretz, this hammer is built for toughness and durability. The handle is made of Padauk wood, known for its strength, stability and beauty, and is oil-finished; it's specially shaped to give you a light touch, and the narrowed neck flexes slightly as you hammer for ultimate comfort. The head is cast from 420-grade stainless steel and tool hardened to 50 HRC for maximum durability and effectiveness.
