Make Every Piece Perfect

Our Handheld Clay Extruders are designed for ease and consistency, allowing you to effortlessly create uniform ceramic handles, feet, and other additions - every time.

What are
Handheld Clay Extruders?

Our DiamondCore® Tools handheld clay extruders are ceramic tools that allow you to quickly and easily create consistent, uniform feet and handles for your ceramic projects, saving time and reducing manual effort.

The adjustable depth ski, sleek wooden handle, and advanced blade technology make this an ideal tool for potters who create dishes, plates, platters, pitchers, mugs, and other vessels. Run your handheld clay extruder through the slab of clay, cut it to length, and attach it to your clay project.

Why the DiamondCore® Tools Team Made our Best-Selling Clay Extruders

At DiamondCore® Tools, we wanted to make it easy for potters to make handles and feet. We saw and experienced how challenging and time-consuming this process can be. Creating a repeatable shape — let alone any details or decorative profiles — add to that time.

Initially, our clay extruders started as a simple foot-making tool for hand-building applications, but they quickly became a way to make intricate profiles with minimal setup and cleanup.

What sets Our Handheld Clay Extruders Apart From the Competition

Most clay extruders on the market require dedicated wall space for a mount, and you must purchase additional die shapes for different sizes of extrusions. Don’t even get us started on the hand and arm fatigue as you squeeze the handle to push the clay out! These traditional extruders also require time to refill then clean after each use.

Common Hand-Pulling Problems

  • Time-consuming
  • Requires skill that takes time to perfect
  • Consistency is hard to achieve
  • No unique shapes
  • Can cause hand fatigue

Common Wall-Mounted Extruder Problems

  • Expensive
  • Takes up wall space
  • Setup takes time
  • Cleanup is cumbersome
  • You can't vary the depth of your extrusions

Handheld Clay Extruder Tips and Tricks

  • Use DiamondCore® Tool’s Handheld Clay Extruders for foot and handle making when the clay is not extremely wet or sticky.
  • Keep the tool’s blade dry and clean of debris.
  • Pull the extruder through the clay at a low angle. This will help separate the extrusion from the slab and makes it easy to remove; while also compressing the inner face, giving the surface a smooth and clean finish.

Cool Idea

"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."

R Series Diamond Set

"First I was apprehensive about the price. Decided to treat myself and purchased set. I cannot adequately express the quality and durability I've found this set to be. The extruder hand tools are easy to use cutting almost leather-dry clay. Quicker than setting up and filling any vertical extruder. I would suggest these extruder hand tools for both individual and small production pottery."
