Hey Randall & Gang,

I have to agree so far ! I'm really happy with my mudshark but I have to a=
dmit it's still new. I'm going to wait until I have it for at least a yea=
r to see how well it holds up since the main part is plastic. I just want=
to see how long the handle locks like it's supposed to & continues to hold=
the needle part firm & secure . I love the idea of having two tools in on=
e package. Now if they could just make it float I would be in heaven !

I just have to say that the "Mud Shark" (needle tool/fettling knife) is
brilliant. Why didn't someone think of this before!! Also, don't skimp. Buy
the real deal since the other maker that has similar product doesn't

I feel the same way. It's the only Sherrill tool that I have
purchased that I don't use. I find the wood knives I have don't stick
as much to the clay when I trim near the foot as the Sherrill tool
does. I think every other tool in his line is fantastic.
