Product Details

Introducing the newest line of Fretz hammers, Fretz PrecisionSmith super-small stainless steel hammers, for precise detailed work on the finest of jewelry. These hammers are smaller than the Fretz mini hammer line with shorter length heads (65mm vs 70mm on average), smaller working surfaces and thinner handles. The Fretz PrecisionSmith line has the same highly polished and properly hardened stainless steel heads matched with fabulous hardwood handles that make a Fretz hammer a Fretz hammer.

This is the Fretz PrecisionSmith Small Embossing Hammer HMR-405, with a handle length of 220mm (8-5/8") and a hammer head length of 63mm (2-1/2"). The hardened stainless steel heads are polished to perfection, and the rosewood handles have a special finish that feels downright sensual. No kidding, the rosewood handles and finished so well that they just plain feel good in you hand. The balance is perfect, and the polished stainless steel surface is exceptional.

Here is what Bill Fretz has to say about Embossing:

Embossing is the stretching of metal by hammering from the inside. Bocking is a form of embossing when the metal is hammered into a cavity. Free-form embossing is done with a sandbag. The large embossing hammer is used to dome metal from the inside. The metal is stretched from the inside as it is supported on a sand bag or a depression carved in wood. Doming a piece of metal before raising makes it easier to control because the shape becomes rigid. The embossing hammer also leaves a very interesting dimpled texture on flat and slightly domed metal when hammering on the outside of a form against a stake. The size of the hammer will be dictated by the size of the work. Small light projects will use the mini large embossing hammer No. 4 and the larger work will demand the large large embossing hammer No. 104. The concepts of what they do are the same.
