About Short Sharp Raising Hammer, Fretz HMR-13
A substitute for HMR-12 when textures on wire or very small surfaces are desired.
This is the Fretz Short Sharp Texturing/Raising Hammer No. 13, with a handle length of 225mm (8-7/8") and a hammer head length of 72mm (2-7/8")
The hardened stainless steel heads are polished to perfection, and the rosewood handles have a special finish that feels downright sensual. No kidding, the rosewood handles and finished so well that they just plain feel good in you hand. The balance is perfect, and the polished stainless steel surface is exceptional.
Here is what Bill Fretz has to say about Raising:
Raising is the compression of metal down to the stake without stretching it. The trick is to angle the metal off the stake so that there is an air gap for the compression.
