This is a set of five Fretz Chasing hammers. Fretz Chasing Hammers are so terrific, why not own all five?

These chasing hammers have Paduck pistol griped handles, and highly polished stainless steel cast heads. The head on the Fretz chasing hammer is hardened to 50Rc on the Rockwell scale, but keep in mind that the Fretz chasing hammers are the only hammers in the Fretz collection that are meant to be used against a tool and not directly on metal, meaning that the polished head may become marred during normal use.

Bill Fretz says that properly hardened chasing tool (chasing tools that are hardened on the working end-but not the striking end) should show mushrooming on the striking end of the tool during normal use. Marring on the face of this hammer will not affect the intended use of the hammer in any way. Because all Fretz hammers are hand finished, variations in head diameter size can occur, as no two hammers are exactly alike.

As with any hammer you use, eye protection is required

Fretz hammers are remarkable for two primary features:

The Handles
Fretz Rosewood Handles. Made from African Padauk, a type of Rosewood, the Fretz handle has a marvelous feel, smooth and perfectly balanced. 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.

The Heads
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.
