That is from the Makins Professional Clay Tool Kit. It is 35 dollars at Michaels and I got it when there was a 50% off coupon (They come out every few weeks) http://www.polymerclaypit.co.uk/acatalog/ProToolset.jpg It has lots of great tooks with it and was well worth the money.

You could probably also use a small circle cutter tilted on its side a bit, you'd just have to do a little more shaping.

Thank you for the kind words, I hope you have fun Cheesy

Great tutorial!! 

photochickkds, you could also use a drinking straw by cutting one end cut in half lengthwise.  Or just look at any cutters you might have around the house... some of them will have a part of one edge, e.g.,  that could be used.  Other sharp-edge things-around-the-house could be metal or plastic caps of lipsticks or eyebrow pencils or other things... they could be used tilted, or many could be cut in half like the straws.
Or you could make your own U cutter from a strip of metal from a soda can... first cut a rectangle shape with scissors, then bend and use it... or wrap it (halfway) around a marker or other rod whose diamater is wide as the icie you want, then secure with tape (that should work as a handle and also as a stabilizer --or make a polymer clay handle).
