Drag Tool - Carving Tool (Mudtools)


Inspired by Japanese carving tools. It is common in Japan for Potters to pull, rather than push, their carving tools through clay. The dragging motion allows for less friction and a fluid cut. 

Made of high carbon steel and tempered to be very hard, the Dragtool is designed to grace the hand and made a fluted mark in the clay. One end cuts a wider flute than the other. Wether you draw a long fluted line or chip away at the clay, the texture looks beautiful under a celadon or any glaze that breaks on the surface.
