This list is a set of 7 stainless steel trimming/chattering tools hand made by Master Potter Hsin-Chuen Lin.
With stainless steel, these tool set stay sharp longer, clean up easier and rust free.
Resharpening instruction: I have a bench grinder in my studio and before trimming I usually like to sharpen the tools. If you don't have a power grinder, you can use a fine file or a fine sanding/grinding stone lightly sanding the inner part of the tools. The outside part of the tools already have acute angle and by sanding the inner part you should be able to make the tools sharp again. Please watch the resharpening video here: https://m.youtube.com/watch?v=Qil2vIoQq2o
Please watch the video on how to use the stainless steel tools for trimming and creating chattering texture. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=tgrq_E090EA https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=sNoTUJTO2Ck https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=oLNpVPI22VQ https://m.youtube.com/watch?v=qmiCCh1NMvE

These are high quality tools that perform well with 'leather hard' pieces for finish trimming. Well packaged and promptly shipped. I would recommend a packaging insert on routine cleaning, care and sharping would be helpful.
