Product Details

Now every “maker” can work with quality tools.

MKR-401 Maker Precisionsmith Planishing Hammer has slightly rounded and a flat working ends like the MKR-1 Maker Planishing Hammer but is smaller and lighter, with a head that is 65 mm long vs. 70 mm and polished ends that are about 25% smaller in diameter. The light touch of this Precisionsmith hammer is excellent for forming bezels and other delicate tasks. The MKR-401 is a good choice for subtle textures on small components.

420 Stainless Steel Heads
American Ash Handles
Premium Fretz Quality at a Lower Price

With the advent of cheap low quality knock-offs of Fretz hammers coming from Pakistan, Bill and Jordan Fretz have struck back against the copy-cat scammers with the new Maker line of hammers. The Maker line delivers the quality and beauty that jewelers have come to expect from Fretz at a lower price point. Just like the premium line of Fretz hammers, Maker hammers use hand polished 420 stainless steel heads matched with beautifully formed and balanced oil finished handles. The savings comes from a slight redesign on the head shapes and by using North American ash for the handles instead of the more expensive paduk used on the premium lines. The result is a high quality hammer with the great Fretz style and functionality for significantly less expense.

Fretz Maker hammers are made with the same attention to detail that makes the premium line of Fretz hammers so special.

Nice hammer

I'm a beginner hammering wire, but this is the best quality hammer in my collection so far, very smooth faces don't mar the wire. This hammer seems quite sturdy, is nicely balanced and is small enough to work well with wire. Looking forward to working more with it. I'm glad I purchased it, and I recommend it.
