Sherrill Flexible Ribs
Sherrill ribs are made from a flexible material that performs very well and actually gets better with use- it's self-polishing. Unlike rubber this material will not develop burrs. In fact, the more you use it the nicer it becomes. They will actually burnish themselves as you use them. Each rib shape is available in four hardnesses from very soft to very firm. You choose the shape and hardness that suits your clay and your working style.
The Shredder is a shear form tool specifically designed for use with leather hard clay-- it will not clog with clay or cause undue fatigue. A really handy tool!
The Mudcutter has been designed to go around a 4 inch pug or extrusion. It's design lends itself to the slicing and cutting of handbuilding, or at the wheel it fits well in the hand. It also works great as a faceting tool and is made of stainless steel with a surgical stainless steel wire under tension. It is easy to change the wires, if needed. The handle has an insert made from the same material as the ribs. This is a lifetime tool. (with straight wire).
