Dolan Ceramic Tools
DOLAN TOOLS is dedicated to the productions of the finest quality, handmade, ceramic tools.
With over 20 years of tool construction experience, they pride themselves in providing a premium product MADE IN AMERICA, with 100% American materials.
Each Dolan tool is completely handmade from the finest high carbon knife steel. Our tools are meticulously formed and sharpened using methods only used by DOLAN TOOLS.
The fine edge of a Dolan tool is tempered and treated to withstand the vigor of the true ceramic artist.
Couple the superior tool head with a fine lathe turned hardwood handle and the tool becomes the instrument of your expression.
DOLAN TOOLS are made from a high carbon knife grade steel that has both a quality and lasting life that DOLAN TOOLS stand behind.
We believe using your tools often is the best way to keep your tools in optimal condition. With continual use, rinsing after handling, and storing them in a dry place, you will retain the quality and prolong your tool's life. If you find yourself in a position where you may not use them for a while, we recommend coating them in a fine layer of oil, any oil will do. This will preserve your tools for when you are ready to use them.
If for any reason you decide on sharpening your tools we caution that the edge of each of the ceramic tools we make are refined to a razor's edge. Use the utmost care while sharpening to avoid any injury that may occur.
In order to sharpen your tools we recommend three methods. One, use an oil or water whetstone. Two, use a diamond file. Or three, send your tools back to us and we will restore your edge.
Under no circumstances use any power tools or any other process that will heat up the steel. DOLAN TOOLS are made with great care and heating the steel will destroy the temper resulting in a tool that will never hold its edge again.
