New in 2015 from Bill and Jordan Fretz, these Extra Large Silversmith Hammers are for when you need to move thicker metals without having to exert yourself. The weight of these hammers make the process of hammering heavy gauge metal easier because the weight of the hammer does the work rather than your arm and shoulders. These hammers do require some added strength to weld but they don't have to be used with anger. Rather let the size and weight of these extra-large silversmiths hammer do the work for you.

These hammers are considerable larger than anything Fretz has offered in the past with hammer weights including handles ranging from 350 to 800 grams (3/4 lbs to 1-3/4 lbs). The handles are fantastic as you have come to expect from Fretz, well-formed, smooth to the touch and nicely finished with thicker diameters than the Fretz Large Silversmith line. Heads are cast 422 Stainless Steel with fully polished ends. For use with non-ferrous metals. These hammers are available individually or in a set of 5. See part number 137.341-KIT for kit.

The HMR-303 is a heavy hammer to remove the marks from the inside of a shape that have first been stretched with the HMR-301, 302 or 304 hammers. The HMR-303 has two faces with different widths and curves. The selection of which face is correct will depend on the inside curvature of the project. The larger face is slightly domed while the smaller face is more cured. The weight of this hammer is also useful for forging heavy wire or ingots.
