Clay Extruders — Customer Favorites

Clay Extruder










The R9 Handheld Clay Extruder is one of our customer favorites! The stainless steel blade cuts through clay easily and effortlessly. Create double-rounded handle shapes that are perfect for dishes, platters, plates, mugs, pitchers and anything else that you can create. 

This clay extruder is such a cool idea! Not only can I make a handle so much more easily than the traditional way, but I also use this tool to create decorative ribbons on my work. If you get creative with it it doesn't just have to be used for making handles! It also cuts through the clay so satisfyingly easily. Jessica

Our R12 Koala Handheld Clay Extruder is another customer favorite. This unique shape creates clean and crisp handles every time. Plus, each tool has an adjustable depth ski, allowing you to control the thickness of the cut. 

So happy with my first order from DiamondCore Tools. Order process was smooth with timely delivery. It works like a charm. Lots of handles in minimal time - now everything needs a handle! Traditional, strap handle, etc. lol Gives your handles a great professional appearance. Give it a try. You won’t be disappointed! —Adruenne
