This Fretz® goldsmithing hammer features a highly polished round face for general purpose use, and a highly polished cross-peen face for riveting and forming. Intended for fine detail work on softer metals, this hammer is ideal for light forging, shaping, riveting and contouring.
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 thin 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.
