These premium quality trim tools in the 200 SERIES HEAVY GAUGE feature a true tool steel loop that is hardened, tempered, and then cryogenically treated to create a super steel blade. The loop is ¼” wide, and sharp on both edges. Acetate handles have closed cell foam grips for added comfort. The overall length of each tool is approximately 6-1/2”. The tools can be re-sharpened for extra long life.
Our NEW 300 SERIES MEDIUM GAUGE tools are made of a high carbon steel. The blades are hardened and tempered to withstand abrasion from clay, but tough enough to be impacted and not break. Super for trimming and faceting
HEAT TREATED FOR A LONGER LASTING BLADE.
Groovy Tools is a new concept in trim tools. We start with a blade of the highest quality steel. The 200 SERIES HEAVY GAUGE TOOLS are made from true tool steel. The blade is heat treated, tempered, and then re-treated cryogenically to produce a molecularly superior steel. In our NEW 300 SERIES MEDIUM GAUGE TOOLS we use 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!
ABOUT GROOVY TOOLS
Groovy Tools LLC is a young company, started by Susan and Dave Burge in Lawrenceburg, Kentucky. Susan has been working with clay for over nine years, and sells her creations through her shop, What-A-Crock Pottery. Dave is an engineer by degree, and has no artistic talent.
Susan was well aware of the difference between premium quality tools and the inexpensive, run-of-the-mill tools. As high quality tools became harder to come by, Susan began talking to Dave about making their own tools. One thing lead to another and Groovy Tools LLC was formed.
From the very first tool discussions, Susan and Dave knew that the tools needed to be of the very highest quality. Their focus has always been on tools that would hold an edge.
Groovy Tools are made with the best materials possible. The tool steel blade is sharpened to a keen edge and mated to a fatigue reducing handle that allows each ceramic artist to achieve results to the best of their potential. In addition to staying sharp longer, the tool steel can be successfully re-sharpened. With minimal care, your tools will last a long time.
We hope you will give Groovy Tools a try. If you have been using the mass produced tools, try a premium quality, hand made tool. We know you will like the difference.
