This planishing PrecisionSmith hammer from the economical Maker® line from Fretz® is ideal for work on lighter metal gauges, for filigree and other fine work, and for texturing. Planishing hammers feature one round, flat face and one round, slightly domed face; both are polished to a mirror shine to refine metal surfaces and for finishing work, smoothing and removing tool marks left by previous finishing steps. Scaled-down jewelers’ hammers, PrecisionSmith hammers are perfect for use with lighter metal gauges; 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, has an oil finish and 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."
