Perform a wide range of hand-wrought metal shaping and forming tasks with this quality-made, hardened tool-steel punch from Fretz® Tools. This Fretz PL-6 tool is designed for smoothing and refining metal contours using embossing (chasing) techniques. The shank of the tool is squared-off and matte-finished with a 90° twist at the end, providing a secure, slip-free grip while working. The tip of the tool is highly polished with a mirror finish to form without marring the metal surface.
Planishing chasing tools are used to smooth the relief areas of an embossed design; these tools are highly polished with shaped tips and usually feature a straight wall that helps them access the floor and walls of free-form and geometric concave areas.
Created by expert metalsmith and tool designer Bill Fretz and manufactured for the professional jeweler, the Fretz® line of chasing tools supports your best work with excellent ergonomics and precisely ground and polished surfaces. Each is made from the finest materials for high-quality, repeatable results, maximum durability and long service life.
