Bill Fretz knows hammers! This is Bill's recommended set for those who want to do Silversmithing; Raising, stretching, forging and larger format work. These are the biggest hammers in the Fretz line. Hit the Forge!

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.Each weight of hammer has an appropriate sized handle, the heavier the head, the heavier the handle.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.
