Groovy Tools' 300 Series Tools uses a high carbon steel that is hardened and tempered to withstand the abrasion from clay but tough enough to be impacted and not break. From the type of steel, to the treating process, right down to the blade angle, this tool was designed to hold an edge. The finished blade is then mated to an acetate handle that is impervious to moisture. No more worries about wooden handles swelling, blades loosening, or having to wipe your handles with oil. Our handles are light, strong, and will last a long, long time.
The final touch is an ergonomic grip. This gives the handle just a little softness for a better grip with less fatigue. And the bright colors are really groovy!
Whether you are a professional potter or a newcomer to the craft, you will appreciate the quality and durability of Groovy Tools. As the experienced potter knows, a good strong trim tool that starts out sharp and stays sharp will pay many dividends. Among the advantages are; less pressure applied to the tool and work piece, fewer broken or damage pieces, less fatigue, and greater precision.
