Fretz® Silversmith hammers, some of the most commonly used hammers among jewelers, offer larger heads that are ideal for shaping small sculptures and hollowware. This hammer has a broad, rounded cross peen face that works well for creating concave shapes in metal. The wide domed face is great for larger jewelry projects where a heavier hammer is needed to form metal into a concave block of wood or a sandbag. The rounded edges will leave subtle shimmering hammer marks.
In addition, this hammer is a good choice for planishing deep concave surfaces, such as in a concave bracelet, because the face does not have any edges to catch the metal if the hammer strikes from slightly different angles, and the long head allows a good reach for deep concave forming.
Built for toughness and durability. 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.
