This Fretz® jeweler’s planishing hammer wields the weight of an all-metal head 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 hammer includes nine inserts, providing a variety of shapes for a wide range of configurations ideal for raising, planishing and embossing work.
Designed by Bill Fretz, this jeweler's 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.
