 Easy to shape by sanding to make your own specialized tools. Carve a design into the end to make a custom stamp impression tool. Push these round rods in to a glass pipe to make the bowl. Most ends are flat, a couple happen to have a tapered cone pointed end. Why Carbon?   Most materials like metal will stick to molten glass.

Made from Kevlar and or Nomex, the same material that fire fighter's flame resistant clothing is made from.
  • Remember The temperature rating is how hot before the fibers begin to break down. It does not mean you can indefinitely hold an 800°F item, the heat will slowly penetrate and heat up until you can no longer hold it. It dramatically extends the time you handle hot objects. Also Perfect for the kitchen, barbecue, changing a light bulb, or anywhere you need to get a sure grip on a hot object!

Bark Stoppers


Tops of the stoppers are actual bark.
Bark tops can be a bit rough...cause they are real bark.
Looks great on your jars.
