Getting the right hammer for the job can be frustrating, especially when it comes to specialist hammers. Many crafts require a tool with a greater level of control and precision, so having the right tool for the job is doubly important. This type of chasing hammer, also called a repoussé hammer, is an essential tool in a jeweller’s toolbox. The hammer will shape the metal precisely and accurately and is a great tool for forming and raising shapes from sheet metal. The highly polished face has a large striking area and the slight dome prevents unwanted marks. The carefully shaped wooden handle is comfortable to hold and the rounded end helps with control.
