A unique tool from Bill van Gilder!  

Here is what Bill has to say:
"Designed to comfortably fit the hand, this lightweight and hard-surfaced aluminum 'knife' will become one of your most-used studio tools - for handbuilding and at the wheel.  Unlike a flat knife blade, the ultra-thin textured and tensioned wire cuts through clay without drag or distortion.  It's ideal for cutting coils!  And, it's a safe tool to use in the classroom.  It's a great tool for leveling rims - a safe alternative to the more dangerous needle tool.  Use it to trim teapot spouts and handle ends, facet, cut-out feet and more."

Not suitable for hard, coarse clay or plaster.

Dimensions:   3" wire length in a 5" x  3/4" U-shaped frame

**Replacement wire (BVG-098-01W) available; sold separately.**
