Create perfectly parallel strips of clay in just about any width up to 12 mm with this hand blade tool.
The tool comes with five blades and 12 pairs of brass washers.
Arrange the blades and washers in a variety of configurations to achieve the cut width you want. For example, use two blades with all 12 washer pairs to create a single strip approximately 12 mm wide, or use all five blades separated by single washer pairs to create four strips approximately 1 mm wide.
Mix and match blades and washers to achieve whatever width (or widths) you like. Roll out your metal clay, or start with a sheet of Art Metal Clay paper type clay. Hold the blade tool at a slight angle, apply firm pressure and pull the blades through the clay slowly and smoothly.

Please Note: Because there is a bit of play in the blades to allow for easier rearranging, set the blades against a flat surface as you tighten the adjustment screws. This will ensure that the blades are even and level, so that all the blades through the clay completely. CAUTION: Blades are very sharp; wear finger or hand protection and handle them with care.
