Mudtools Clay Shredder is an indispensable tool for shaping and carving leather hard clay. The Clay Shredder can also be used to leave textures on any clay surface. Refer to images for examples.
Although originally this rasp was designed to be used on wood, clay people, sculptors and auto-body repairmen discovered how well the blade worked on other materials (like clay and auto body filler). The problem with rasps found at a hardware store was the handle design. The handle would trap clay and get clogged up. The Clay Shredder was designed with an open blade shape to avoid clogs as well as a comfortable ergonomic handle.
