Mudtools Rib #5 is the universally recognized traditional kidney-shaped pottery rib. Whether you are throwing clay on the wheel, hand-building or sculpting, the pottery rib is a classic and essential tool.
Shape #5 is the largest of the Mudtool kidney-shaped ribs, which come in three sizes: #0 being the smallest, #1 the middle and #5 being the largest. As a bigger version they offer more surface coverage, making them great for smoothing a slab of clay.
All stainless steel pottery and sculpture ribs are all made of cutlery grade stainless steel with varying flexibility among the tool styles.
