  1. Favorite Tools

    Just attended my first NCECA and yet somehow I managed to be restrained, probably thanks to paradox of choice. Haven't had a chance to use my new hole punchers--at the push of a button they eject their little plugs of clay!--but have already figured out that the Xiem fettling/smoothing tool I picked up is my new favorite. Usually use an X-acto for cutting, but the curve of the fettling knife and the feel of it means more naturalistic curves, and the smoothing tool is amazing for sgraffito. Now I'm wondering if I shouldn't have gotten a few more... Does anyone run into a problem where they buy a tool and then just never use it? That's likely why I like to exhaust my choices/get frustrated with inadequate tools before picking up yet another bit of kit.
