This is a new shape like the PPT#1M but more round.
Like PPT#1M: Wet Handle Width: 1" give or take. Total Handle Length is 5.5" give or take. https://youtu.be/R1LA9MCXrUY and https://youtu.be/djk8jQceMxg
With this and the other PPT Handle tools, you will be able to make a variety of handle shapes for Mugs, Tea Pots, Pitchers, Casseroles, Vases, Baskets, Trays and much more. You can also alter the handle in unlimited ways after the pull (while it's cradled in the bed of clay) and or shaping by twisting, carving, imprinting, etc. after you remove it from the clay.
All tools are designed and created by Tony Ferguson in Duluth, MN. USA from the best industrial materials available. Slight variations will occur because they are hand made.

I've used it on about 4 mugs/pitchers and it worked great. Everyone loves my thinner handles.

I finally had a chance to use this new tool and it is fantastic. I create hundreds of mugs at a time and mostly use handle cutters. This particular one creates a simple interesting look and the handle itself is nice and lightweight. Very pleased with this purchase!
