Product Details

Outstanding Quality in Polished Stainless Steel-You'll Love These Hammers!

Fretz Jeweler's Hammers are the original hammers made by Fretz, and still by far the most popular hammer in the growing line of Fretz hammers. Fretz Precisionsmith hammers are smaller than these Jewelers hammers, and Fretz Silversmithing hammers are larger, so for many people, Fretz Jeweler's hammers are “just right”.

Fretz hammers are remarkable for two primary features:

The 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. Handles are usually a dark brown color although some 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 casts the hammer heads in 420 stainless steel and then hardens them to 50Rc. They are highly polished and available in a variety of shapes and profiles for every metalsmithing technique.

The Concave Texturing Hammer No.14A is a planishing hammer with randomly ground heads that gives the texture of “Raw Silk”. The texture is handmade using diamond tools, and both sides of the hammer have this treatment. Similar to a texture that could be rolled onto flat metal but not possible with dimensional shapes.

The head shape of this hammer is made to reach into concave areas.

This is the Fretz "Raw Silk" Texturing Hammer No. 14A, with a handle length of 225mm (8-7/8") and a hammer head length of 73mm (2-7/8"). Its hardened stainless steel heads have been textured with a diamond tool, and the rosewood handles feel downright sensual. No kidding, the rosewood handles and finished so well that they just plain feel good in your hand.
