Designed primarily for the jewelry maker who only wants one hammer!  

In case you are wondering if you can use this instead of a "chasing" hammer when you are making jewelry with our videos, the answer is YES!!

A quick note: The planishing hammer flattens the metal using the shape of the head. A chasing hammer is used to chase a chasing tool (looks like a nail with a design on the other end) in a pitch bowl to move and design metal. We use it because the chasing face is large and we can “planish” with it. And as a bonus we can “emboss” with the ball pein end.

This Planishing Hammer has a single plastic end which can be removed with a Hex Key. The flat plastic end forms metal while leaving it smooth. The metal end is slightly domed to make it easier to strike flat and slightly domed metal.
