Soaking coconut ribs in mineral oil renders them tough, and their natural curves and ergonomic shapes make them suitable tools for both throwing and handbuilding.
Xiem's stainless steel clay ribs are some of the finest available, designed for shaping, trimming, cutting, smoothing and finishing materials such as water-based clay, polymer clay, leather, wax and plaster. The SSR2A is 2.4"...
This rib works well for shaping the interiors of small bowls, and for compressing vertical walls. Dimensions: 3" x 1.125"
