The Robert Sorby Excelsior medium tear drop cutter provides a multi-facetted, highly efficient cutting edge in a durable coating. As with all teardrop cutters, the shape effectively converts the tool into a round, half-round or square scraper suitable for use on the inside or outside of bowls, platters and hollow forms. Use the straight edge on outside curves and the rounded shapes for internal curved shapes. A great all rounder that supports traditional scraping and shear scraping techniques.
This cutter is also available in high speed steel.

This cutter is designed for use with the following tools:
