Great Tools & Book for Metal Manipulation


I actually bought these tools separately before this package was offered. They are all high quality and along with some more Fretz hammers and pine wood, are enough to learn metal shaping. The book is very well illustrated and thorough in slowly teaching the techniques. Just be careful about the expense when you want to expand your hammer and stake collection!
