In the process of repousse, the tips of your tools, their shapes and their finish are what get transferred to your metal. With every hammer blow to your tool, your metal beneath changes shape and texture. Victoria Lansford and Fretz Tools have teamed up to provide the very best Eastern Repousse Tools to move your metal wherever your ideas take you.

These Tools Can Be Used for All Types of Repousse but Are the Only Kind that Can Be Used for Eastern Repousse


FAQs about Victoria’s Tools and Fretz

• These are the same quality tools Victoria has been making available since 2009.

• Victoria personally tests every single tool and makes any necessary adjustments by hand to ensure they are perfect.

• Victoria has worked with many tool manufactures in the past to produce her tools. Because the makers of Fretz Tools understand what perfect finishing is all about, having Fretz now produce her Eastern Repousse Tools means the quality remains excellent without her having to regrind them to perfection. This allows Victoria to keep them consistently in stock and available.

Never have to make another tool to "fit that shape" ever again...


From Victoria: I've taught the technique of Eastern repousse and chasing to hundreds of people, and while some people very much enjoy making the the tools, most people just want to jump in and explore the technique. There have always been other sets of tools commercially available, but I've never found any that didn't require a great deal of re-grinding to make them usable. I've also found that half the tools in the sets are often redundant and unnecessary.

After years of searching for a better way, I had my own tools replicated so that people, who don't wish to spend hours at a grinder, can jump into moving and shaping metal right away. Because the high quality round stock steel they are made from is smooth and easy to hold, I now use them exclusively to create all my repousse and chasing artwork instead of my original tools.

If you have questions please email Victoria.

Holding line Ttool

• The round stock is easy to rotate and more comfortable to hold, which reduces hand fatigue.

• The tapered necks allow the user to see tool placement with greater accuracy.

• The shorter tool length allows for greater control where the tools hits the metal with no skipping or skating.

• Because they are designed to be held near the neck for greater control, they fit any hand size even though they are shorter than other sets on the market. (The package insert shows the correct way to hold them.)

Eastern Repousse and Chasing DVD

Over 5 hours of instruction and inspiration that will teach you how to hammer like the masters.

My interest in Repousse was greatly influenced by Lansford, being drawn to sculptural pieces, I was attracted to her work. When first looking at examples of her pieces I was inclined to find out as much as I could to help me to create very three dimensional and tactile textures that create dynamic tactile surfaces. This undulation of the piece causes light and shadow to play upon the surface as the piece is viewed adding depth. In differing light conditions this will make the viewed piece far more dynamic and ?alive.' This was an effect I wanted to create in my future body of work... her instructional videos are second to none with clear explanations of processes, with a relaxed and easy style that encourages one to get on and have a go.
