Outstanding Quality in Polished Stainless Steel-You'll Love These Hammers!
Bill Fretz knows hammers! This is the recommended assortment of Fretz texturing hammers, with the 4 mini texturing hammers and 3 PrecisionSmith texturing hammers, all in one money saving kit.
Fretz hammers are remarkable for two primary features:
Fretz Rosewood Handles. Made from African Padauk, a type of Rosewood, the Fretz handle has a marvelous feel, smooth and perfectly balanced. Each weight of hammer has an appropriate sized handle, the heavier the head, the heavier the handle. The rosewood is usually a dark brown color although some handles will have a lighter color as Fretz will occasionally source a lighter shaded recycled Asian Padauk. No matter what the shade is, you won’t find a better handle on any hammer made today.
Fretz 420 Stainless Steel Heads. Fretz casts the hammer heads in 420 stainless steel and then hardened to 50Rc. They are highly polished and available in a variety of shapes and profiles for every metalsmithing technique.
