Stainless Steel Large Rib
Made of a heavier grade stainless steel, the Shape 7 Stainless Rib (formerly Shape H015) has less flexibility than some of the other ribs. The blunt end is good for carving away material or removing waste clay on the wheel.
Shape 8, a Bowl Rib, is designed to give as many radius sweeps on the clay as possible. It is smaller in the front and bigger in the back and are a workhorse of a rib, especially if you are throwing big pots.
