Planishing is smoothing metal against a stake by making the blows overlap. This is a stretching technique, which also forms the metal to the underlying stake. The Planishing Hammer is for smoothing metal. The round side is used if the metal has previous raising hammer marks and these need to be smoothed out. The flat side will refine the hammer marks from the rounded side of the Planishing Hammer to a nearly smooth finish. This hammer is also used to size rings, form bezels and general forming of metal against mandrels and stakes. This is the most used hammer and by far the most popular style to have.
