Italian Hardy

Steel or Carbide Hardy- Imported from Italy.

The steel hardy is a cutting workhorse in the mosaic studio. It is used for chopping all sorts of stone, glass and marble. The steel hardy has a softer edge than it's carbide cousin, making it a lot more forgiving and easy to sharpen when it gets nicked and/or dull.

Carbide while prized for it's hardness holds an edge much longer than steel, however it is brittle, more fragile and therefore susceptible to chipping or breaking. NOT RECOMMENDED FOR BEGINNERS

Both are easily sharpened using the appropriate grinding wheel.
