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.**
