Used with Sorby's RS2000 Hollowing System, the RS205 Slicer Blade has a hollow ground nose and a tungsten carbide tip that allows deep plunge cuts, at any angle, to remove cones from bowls and vessels. The Slicer can also be used as a heavy-duty parting tool. It should be mounted in the Main Handle (RS202) and Side Handle (RS203) assembled at a convenient position on the Slicer blade. It is recommended that the Side Handle be placed in the vertical position to counteract downward forces. Slicer is approximately 15" long.
