Fretz Small Jeweler's Hammers

Bill Fretz's new hammers are scaled-down versions of traditional silversmithing hammers. He miniaturized them so that the shaping and forming versatility of silvermithing hammers could now be applied to smaller projects such as jewelry making. Each tool has a 420 stainless steel head hardened to 50Rc and polished to a mirror-bright finish. Handles are meticulously fashioned from rosewood, shaped to provide perfect balance and control. Styles include Planishing, Raising, Embossing, and Texturing.
