This planishing hammer in the economical Maker® line from Fretz® is ideal for precise, intricate metal work and for creating custom bezels and small vessel forms. It hardens and smooths metal, can be used for raising on small projects and features a slightly rounded face for creating subtle textures. Scaled down from the larger Silversmith design, this hammer is built for toughness and durability yet delivers the precision demanded by an artist.
Each hammer in the Maker® line features a wedge and head of 420-grade stainless tool steel for hardness and endurance; the hammer faces are polished and ready to use. The handle, crafted from North American ash with an oil finish, is specially shaped to give you a light touch; a thin neck flexes slightly as you hammer for ultimate comfort. As the people at Fretz say, "Every maker deserves to work with quality tools."
