First of all, this tool is just cool to look at. The Mudshark is designed to combine the two tools most commonly used when throwing pots: a needle tool to trim the rim at the top and a fettling knife to cut away the waste at the base. Like a real shark, the Mudshark needle is sharp and will bite, so we designed it to fold away when you don’t need it. Safety first! Your fingers will thank you. We do our best to ship the colour requested but occasionally substitutions must be made.
