FRETZ CROSS HATCH TEXTURING HAMMER
Both faces of this hammer have a cross-hatch pattern to produce a textured effect on either curved or flat metal.
Start with the flat textured face, then planish with the domed textured face. The head is made from stainless tool steel for hardness and endurance; features a wedge for a snug fit and long-lasting service.
Made of padauk wood, known for its strength, stability and beauty, and oil-finished, the handle is specially shaped to give you a light touch. Its thin neck flexes slightly as you hammer for ultimate comfort.

Fretz SilversmithÃƒÂ¢Ã¢â€šÂ¬Ã¢â€žÂ¢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 wonÃƒÂ¢Ã¢â€šÂ¬Ã¢â€žÂ¢t want to put it down.
