The Dragtool is named for the Japanese technique that inspired it. Rather than pushing or gouging the clay, pulling or dragging creates less friction and a more fluid cut. This tool is made out of high grade carbon steel for durability and the best cutting edge with two mouth sizes at either end. Use this tool to make fluted lines or chipped textures. These cuts look great under celedons and any glaze that breaks on the surface.
Made in Bat Cave North Carolina, Mudtools began because of a gap in the market. Artist Michael Sherrill couldn’t find the right tools to make his work. So he started making his own. People saw how the tools performed and wanted them for themselves. A business was born. Mudtools are particularly well known for their self polishing ribs. Made in 6 different shape for the various needs of hand builders and throwers, each of the 6 shapes come in a gradation of four hardnesses.
