Item details

ALL PROFESSIONAL TOOLS' APT 8325CH - The classic Chaser Hammer has an Old World European design that is still used today by Jewelers, Watchmakers & other Craftspeople.

The Chaser Hammer has one large, smooth face for striking chasing tools or polishing metal & have a Ball Peen end (round) for peining, texturing & riveting. Polished tool steel head mounted in a well balanced hardwood handle w/a comfortable, ergonomic postal grip is smooth to the touch. The hammers head is forged-tempered & high polished steel w/ 1" (2.5cm) diameter flat face.

The Chaser Hammer is commonly used by Jewelers, is perfect for light weight gold, gold filled, silver, copper & brass metal sheet or hardening or soft wire, texturing metal, jewelry making & metal smiting etc. Flat head is used to planishing, flatten, dent, mark, shape, bend metal & form objects or to strike chasing tools. The Ball Peen round end used for riveting or forming decorative, patterns & designs. Other uses are to work out dings, dents & imperfections in metal (Not for auto body repair, but could be used for auto restoration metal trim straightening). The hammer is perfect used with a steel bench block /anvil or staking tools. When used properly - the ergonomic design & weight of the head, rather than the muscles in your arm & hand, drives the downward motion of this tool.

This is a more popular style with European Silversmiths & preferred by Jewelers worldwide. Other industries that use the Chasing Hammer are Watchmakers, Metal-Smith, Goldsmith, Blacksmiths, Silversmiths, Gunsmith's bench, Craftsman, Planishing, Model Maker, Hobbyists, Metal & Renaissance Artists.
