Used by potters and sculptors for medium duty clay cutting, shaping, and slicing, these 8″ ribbon tools have cutting ends formed from high-strength sharpened stainless steel.

  • Their name is derived from the thin flat ribbon-like steel that is used to form their cutting heads.
  • These tools give you sharp cutting edges with additional strength in the direction of the cut.
  • Both sizes are firmly attached to hardwood handles.
