One face of this Fretz® hammer is textured to produce a “raw silk” effect on either curved or flat metal. The textured surface is only on one hammer face; the other face is smooth. After texturing, use the smooth face to hammer over the texture, giving the texture a shimmer effect. The handle is made of Padauk, known for its strength, stability and beauty, and is oil-finished. Features wedge and heads of stainless tool steel for hardness and endurance. The handle is specially shaped to give you a light touch and a thin neck flexes slightly as you hammer for ultimate comfort.
