Zebrawood pencil carvers may be used for clay carving, sgraffito, mishima, sculpting, scraping and more.
The "Straight" V Tip tool is optimally suited for surface carving and was developed to provide a blade that carves freehand more easily and more like a pencil. Shallow carving depth is easier to manage. Unlike our other carving tools, the blade on this tool does not have a wider opening on one side, (both sides are the same). Note: This straight blade tool does not tend to carve as deep as our curved blade tools, but is great for consistent shallow lines.
These blades are designed for high-performance not longevity. Lifespan depends on numerous factors like clay type, grog, dryness, force used, etc.
These tools are made of exotic zebrawood and are intentionally rough-sanded to provide better grip. They can carve in leatherhard or bone dry clay. This tool has adjustable blade angle capability, a 5.75" long handle with a built-in stylus and a comfortable foam grip.
Use all appropriate safety precautions. Keep out of the reach of children. Wood grain and foam grip colors may vary. Handmade in the USA.
Please avoid cheap imitation copycat versions of these tools which we invented so that we can continue to invent more gamechanger tools.
