Yes.  I have two or three, the oldest, before discovery by cooks, purchased at an art supply store back in the eighties when I was doing some clay sculptures based on my dog and horse artworks. 

They laid around in my studio for years until I needed something to core dozens of pears to go into the dehydrator. Perfect tool for the job.

 

Check in art supplies and you will find several shapes and sizes for working with clay, modeling plastics and etc.

"There are, it has been said, two types of people in the world. There are those who say: this glass is half full. And then there are those who say: this glass is half empty. The world belongs, however, to those who can look at the glass and say: What's up with this glass? Excuse me? Excuse me? This is my glass? I don't think so. My glass was full! And it was a bigger glass!" Terry Pratchett

I remember when the microplane became popular. One for the kitchen would have cost me four times more then my husband paid for one for his shop. I ordered mine from his shop catalog.

Gene Weingarten, writing in the Washington Post about online news stories and the accompanying readers' comments: "I basically like 'comments,' though they can seem a little jarring: spit-flecked rants that are appended to a product that at least tries for a measure of objectivity and dignity. It's as though when you order a sirloin steak, it comes with a side of maggots."
