Item Description

Cutter Size

 

No.1

For fine lines and cross hatching. Use at a steep angle and push forward with light pressure being sure not to go deep. Never try to plunge any cutter deeper than the ground sides of the point. With practice, a line of 0.5mm (0.020”) or less is possible in SoftCutTM material and a little wider in Lino. Care is needed when inking up over lines this fine as it is easy to push the ink into shallow lines with a soft brayer (lino roller).

No.2

A universal and easy to use tool with a low angle of attack. Commonly used as a basic first time tool to cut lines up to 1.5mm (0.060”) or less.

No.3

A tight, round cutter able to cut a 2mm deep sided line where needed. Great in straight lines, but more difficult to turn. Great in SoftCutTM but cut too deep in lino and the upright walls of the cut can leave little support and weaken the top
surface. With practice, it’s useful for cutting small circles by using a swivel motion.

No.4

A wide, rounded bottom “vee” cutter for lines 3mm wide with 45˚ walls for strength of print surface particularly important for fragile detail and unsupported straight lines such as a narrow tree branch with large open spaces each side in lino. A fast remover of material.

No.5

A thin line marking tool for making the first lines to define the design before using other cutters to remove the unwanted background. It can be pushed or dragged across the surface and turned very easily to describe curves and wavy lines. Cut deep into the lino or SoftCutTM to define the limit of material removal particularly useful with SoftCutTM as the material can cling at the end of a cut.

No.6

A flat radius cutter for shallow, wide cuts or for shaving at a side wall to reduce the printed area and leave a strong shallow angle. A clever trick is to use this cutter vertically spun between the fingers to cut a 4mm circle in SoftCutTM (or less with practice) which is useful for the centre of eyes, with either the centre part left to print or the centre removed.

No.7

A flat bottomed wide cutter with safety edges each side. Use the unground sides to prevent shaving the edge of a previously cut line and to remove a 3mm (0.120”) wide flat trough or tidy up unwanted cut lines in the design background.

No.8

A wide and deep cutter able to cut up to 6mm wide. Care is needed not to go too deep but a favourite tool of the experienced lino cutter for bold pieces of work.

No.9

A deep “vee” cutter for narrow lines gives good results in lino but care needed not to go too deep, has a very easy action in tougher materials.

No.10

Same as number nine but with a wider “vee” shape and a more rounded base to produce lines up to 3.5mm wide. As a number nine cutter, a very easy action.

Pack of 12

Manufactured from high carbon steel

Precision ground to an optimum angle for effortless lino cutting
