Cutting Tools

lining the correct cutting tool will make a job ■ruch easier and successful. A non-serrated kitchen Sparing knife (1) makes cutting clay pieces off of a jpe.v cube of clay an easy task. I use a long, rigid sTc'ng blade (2) when I need to make straight cuts fcr a clay sheet, or when cutting clay into slices conditioning. When my design requires a slight curve, I pick up p Seng, thin cutting blade, also called a clay slicer {31. as I can flex the blade while cutting. These thin feScaes are also essential for cutting very thin slices of fn lefiori cane work.

For detail work such as cutting precise shapes, a ocri olade knife ¡4) works well. This tool has detacher;: e blades that can be changed out when they become dull. Simply rotate the textured area of the *?e-al housing to loosen its grip on the blade (which

.-ery sharp!). There are many blade attachments for : blade knives, but I only keep the standard no. I blades on hand.
