What Do Different Types of Hammers Do?

  • Planishing Hammers- This hammer is used to refine the outer surface of curved and flat forms, to help remove hammer marks introduced during raising and forming. Their faces are round or square with a slightly curved or flat surface.
  • Embossing Hammer- You'll use an embossing hammer to create an elevated area by striking metal from behind. This type of hammer is similar in shape, but smaller than a typical forming hammer, and has two different face sizes.
  • Chasing Hammer- This hammer has a large face to strike the end of chasing tools or punches and is not used directly in contact with your work. It's easily identified by its one bulbous end and one thin end.
  • Bordering Hammer- This tool forms a rim on a bowl or platter. Its cross section is a narrow rectangle with a pronounced vertical curve.
