Zebrawood “Pencil” Carvers for Clay Carving & Sgraffito
Zebrawood Carving Tools are a line combine stunning, handcrafted zebrawood handles with stainless steel, ultra-sharp carving blades that are sharper than any pottery carving tool in existence! Requires much less force and leaves little to no debris/burrs
in your carving! Two years in the making was worth the wait. We studied
blade angle, blade thickness, blade width and much more. Each blade is
wider at the exit than the entrance so there is less clogging.
Since our blades are 2 to 3 times sharper than ordinary loop tools
you can carve faster with much less force and muscle fatigue. Use for
carving, sgraffito, sculpting, scraping and more. We designed these Zebra carving tools for clay to make carving much more enjoyable, while being able to produce a much smoother cut in the clay.
Pencil tools all come with a built-in stylus, a smoothing polytube,
and a protective cap. Foam pencil grips are available for greater
control or for grip capability with larger hands.
