All Dolan Tools are individually made from high carbon knife steel, firmly set in hand-turned hardwood handles with brass rivets or ferrules.
Handles are soaked in an oil/resin bath to make them moisture resistant.
Each tool is hand sharpened. All tools are guaranteed and designed to take a lot of hard work!
When not in use, tools should be kept clean and dry. Even a simple wiping with a cloth will work. A light coat of oil applied to both the steel and wood handle from time to time is recommended.
Dolan tools may be resharpened if they begin to dull. We recommend using a whetstone to bring edges back to original keenness. Do not use power grinders or files as they will permanently damage the carbon steel.
The mid-range line of professional cutting tools are made from high carbon steel, have brass ferrules, and hand-turned hardwood handles that are sealed against moisture. These tools are used to trim, slice and shape clay. They are permanently bonded with industrial strength adhesive. 6“ overall length, 3/4” diameter loops.
