Default Where to buy this marver?

Anyone know where I can buy this type of marver?
I've looked around online and can't find it.
TIA.

Artistry in Glass will make it for you, if you can't find it anywhere.

You could make it yourself by grinding a slot into a graphite marver

Did you try the Arrow Springs website? Alternatively, as Wendy suggested, you can grind your own groove into a marver. I've ground grooves into the sides of my graphite marvers with a bead reamer in a dremel. Dampen your marver periodically. Graphite dust is messy.

Thanks Melissa, I'm going to contact them and see what the $ would be.

Thanks Angela, yes I saw Andrea's marver but it's a wee bit different.

Thanks Wendy, didn't consider that. Hmmm, will have to ask husband about that.

Thanks Felicia. Yup checked Arrow Springs and that's where I found Andrea's marver.
When you ground your marver, did it ruin the beadreamer?

It should not bother the bead reamer at all. Graphite is very soft. You can probably carve it with a paring knife.

I used a round file and created a notch in the side of my big paddle marver. It helps to straighten the rods when they get a little crooked while imploding.
