DOLAN TOOLS are made from a high carbon knife grade steel that has both a quality and lasting life that both we at Bracker’s Good Earth Clays and the folks at DOLAN TOOLS stand behind. 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, Dolan recommends 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, keep in mind that the edge of each of the ceramic tools Dolan makes 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 Dolan recommends three methods. One, use an oil or water whetstone. Two, use a diamond file. Or three, send your tools back to Dolan and they 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

We aim to provide excellent customer service to all potters who chose to shop with us, however, the areas we are able to serve best are in Kansas, Missouri, Nebraska, Iowa, Arkansas, Oklahoma, and Illinois.  There are lots of great clay suppliers nationwide that probably do a better job of serving customers in states further away.  If you would like help finding a local supplier, please let us know.  We will be happy to assist you.  

Please note that we favor long term relationships with our customers over one-time transactions on our website based on a random google search result.  We are not Amazon and don't want to be.  We're a bit old-fashioned I guess...but with a website.  

This is a 40 year old family business, now being run by the second generation.  We generally run on a staff of 10 or less, and we all work really hard.    All employees here are treated like family...we DO also think of our customers as family, but that does mean if you are "tormenting" one of our "little brothers or sisters", we'll "ground" you.  

And if you're *really* naughty, you might get a policy named after you.  So just be nice, ok?  You be nice to us, and we'll do our best for you!  That's a promise.
