The Makers Essentials Cutting Tools are all of the cutters and blades and needles that you will need to work with polymer clay, metal clay, and most crafts.
The set includes:
Scalpel/Knife - 5.75" long
Tissue Blade - 4.5" long
Razor Blade - 1.5" long
Budsetter tool - 5.25" long
Needle tool - 6.25" long
Storage/Carry Tube - 6.5" long
Each of these tools have been selected for work with our Clay Punch Cutters™ providing you with a cutting kit all in one place. These are the ones I use on my workbench.
Buy the kit or each tool individualy:
SCALPEL/KNIFE - Super sharp and pointed you can trace and cut clay cleanly and accurately. Easy to hold, the blades are replaceable. But keep it capped or in a tube to preserve the tip and cutting edge.
TISSUE BLADE - Use to cut blocks of clay, long straight edges in sheets, and slice off thin veneers of clay. Really sharp, keep stored in a container to travel with. The notch in the top edge indicates the 'safe' side to hold onto so you don't cut you fingers!
RAZOR BLADE - Sometimes a short straight blade is needed to cut off ends of blocks of clay both raw and baked polymer. Having a razor blade with a covered edge makes this a handy tool for all kinds of work. (These are available in another listing in a set of 5 if you need extra)
NEEDLE TOOL - Often used to poke holes and prod edges, this tool is also an alternative cutting tool for some areas where a knife doesn't maneuver well. Some of my students have had better luck cutting around templates with this tool instead of a scalpel/knife.
BUDSETTER TOOL - This is my go-to tool for lifting and placing the appliqués made with the Clay Punch Cutters™! The double pronged points are small enough not to leave noticeable damage in the clay, but also keep the shape level and easy to place. I LOVE IT!
*Although each of these tools are available separately, the kit comes with a storage/travel container that will hold the blades safely in one place.
