MKR 1-5 Hammer Set by Fretz Tools.

  • Maker Jewelry Tools by Fretz.
  • New group of hammers trademarked by Fretz. 
  • Quality hammers within an artist's budget.
  • EACH HAMMER HERE IS $28.80 each compared to their higher end hammers at $52 each! 
  • Individually these hammers sell for about $30 each. 
  • Made with Fretz's signature 420 stainless steel and with polished faces. 
  • The handles are North American ash with the logo on the handle. 
  • MKR-1-5 are the same size as the other Fretz Hammers. 
  • The strength and durability of these hammers are similiar to the higher end Fretz line.

DIFFERENCES between the MAKER SET and the higher-end FRETZ hammers:

  1. MAKER heads do not have a logo on the head of the hammer so the mold was less expensive and easier to finish. 
  2. MAKER heads are only polished on the working surfaces. The higher-end FRETZ hammers are hand finished on the entire surface and sandblasted individiually.
  3. MAKER wooden handles are ash wood which is far less expensive than the FRETZ higher-end paduak handles. 
  4. MAKER handles are dipped in a hard finish while the higher-end FRETZ hammers have a hand rubbed oil finish on the paduak handles. 
  5. The choice comes down to personal aesthetics and cost. 
  6. You would pay $260 for these 5 higher-end FRETZ hammers! That is a difference of $116!!!!

This series includes:

  • Planishing Hammer - slightly rounded working end for smoothing forged metal. The other end is flat which can refine the planishing marks to smoothness. 
  • Wide Raising Hammer - forging hammer used to draw out wire or sheet metal.
  • Narrow Raising Hammer - a crosspein used to sink metal into concave shapes and fit into curves where a round planishing hammer will not fit. 
  • Large Embossing Hammer - two ball shaped ends of different sizes, used to sink shapes into cavities.
  • Small Embossing Hammer - two round ends to make interesting textures on smaller shapes.

Good product, exactly as described. The quality is excellent. A big plus is that they are affordable, and every bit as functional as the higher priced set.
