Fretz Silversmith„¢s Hammers are unlike any hammers you have ever seen or held before. Only when a Fretz hammer is in your hand, can you fully appreciate or even believe the exquisiteness. With a Fretz hammer, form not only meets function, it meets beauty as well.
Master Silversmith Bill Fretz has designed hammers that are perfect for each step of the forming process; planishing, raising, embossing, riveting, forging. Each hammer has a similar feel making it easy to switch from one to another. Be careful though, once you have a Fretz hammer in your hand, you won„¢t want to put it down.,
