Cutting Clay With Slice
Why Slice Is Perfect for Ceramic Art
There are many great qualities that Slice tools have, but here are some important ones for ceramic art.
Clay is wet, so traditional blades rust. Slice blades never rust.
No Oil Coating
Traditional knives have oil on the them, which can cause issues when firing clay. Slice blades have no oil coating, so will never mess your firing.
Last for Many Years
Slice tools are built for industrial usage. Slice blades last 11.2 times longer than traditional. They don't rust. All these factors ensure that Slice tools will last your many many years.
Easy and Safe to Wash
Slice tools are easy to wash. And last, but not least, Slice finger-friendly® blades are safe to the touch, so when you work with or wash Slice blades, your risk of injury is greatly reduced.
