The Mudcutter may be the most useful tool that you didn?t know you needed. It?s a wire tool with a handle. It can easily cut a plug of clay coming out of a 4 inch pug mill or cut a spout on an angle before attaching it the pot; it?s like an extra hand if you?re cutting clay off an extruder. Made with stainless steel and a comfortable polymer handle. Can be used with a straight or curly wire. Replacement wires are available in either straight or curly designs. The Mudcutter is slightly larger than the Carving Bow, thus the wires are specific for each tool.
