I didn't know what to expect when I ordered this tool, but wow, is it ever wonderful! I can make beautiful handles in a fraction of the time that it takes me to use my barrel+dies extruder and with almost no clean-up. I couldn't be more pleased!
If you hate handle pulling (guilty) these are for you! I love how many profiles and shapes are available, really something for everyone. Love the feature that you can adjust thickness, I prefer a slender handle and this can execute it dandy!
This extruded really delivers. I have tried other handle making tools. The results were inconsistent and disappointing. The R4 tool cuts a perfect handle every time. The best part is the ability to set the depth. That’s always been a major issue with other handle making tools. The blade is very sharp and it cuts the clay like butter. There’s no drag like with other tools. The best investment I’ve made in a long time.
