This repousse hammer (sometimes called a chasing hammer) is a great tool for forming and raising shapes from sheet metal. The word 'repousse' comes from the French verb meaning 'to push back' and it is one of the oldest metalsmithing techniques in the world. Sheet metal is supported in a bed of warm pitch and punches are struck against it to bend and stretch it from the reverse to raise a design.
The highly polished face gives a large striking area and is slightly domed so the edges will not leave marks. The wooden handle is shaped specifically for repetitive hammering work so it is comfortable to hold and the shape of the rounded end helps it to naturally return to the correct position to aid the hammering action.
As this hammer is good for directly striking metal sheet and wire on a steel block, anvil, sandbag or on a stake to form complex curved and folded shapes. The rounded end can also be used to achieve a hammered texture. This such a versatile hammer you are sure to wonder how you ever managed without it!
