Graphite Hand Paddles
Graphite Hand Paddle Picture
These hand held paddles are used to shape molten glass. The extra long handles are rubber coated for comfort. Remember, do not put this or any tool directly into the flame, work and shape your glass out of the flame. Watch Out - Some other suppliers out there on the internet are selling paddles that have grainy, not sanded, pads and weak handles. Ours are fine sanded on the good fine grain material with strong handles.
