Chasing, Repousse (Embossing)
Chasing is the opposite of repousse, and the two are used in conjunction to create a finished piece. It is also known as embossing. Repousse is used to work the reverse of the metal to form a raised design on the front, chasing is used to refine the design on the front of the work by sinking the metal.

These hammers have one large smooth face for striking, chasing, chiselling or planishing metal and one round face for riveting, peening or metal design. The well balanced hardwood narrow necked handles offer comfort and reduces hand strain from the repoussé 'bounce back' effect.
