We're thrilled to offer an incredible addition to our line of fine-point products: the FP6 Fine Point Ballpoint Carving Tool. Giving some sgraffito style to your ceramic pieces will be as easy as signing your name! Similar to a U tip carving blade, this ballpoint-shaped blade is unique and can maintain a consistent groove at various angles. It features a handmade wood handle with two comfortable grips, easing fatigue in those long studio sessions. If those sessions lead to a worn-out blade, don't fret! Our always-sharp blade is replaceable, so you'll keep this tool for years instead of discarding it when the blade wears through. With its innovative design, the FP6 Ballpoint is unique from other sgraffito wire tools.
