Flexcut Linoleum & Printmaking Set
Linoleum & Printmaking Set Great for Professionals ...and Students

Professionals will like the quality and students will appreciate the value of Flexcut’s tool set for linoleum and printmaking.

The set features four blade profiles from Flexcut’s extensive line of palm tools. An 1/8-inch and a 5/16-inch sweep, a 1/4-inch V-tool, plus a 1mm micro V-tool. Palm tools offer great control while making cuts, so they are perfect for relief carving and close detail work.

Each blade is razor sharp and easily cuts away linoleum and wood surfaces to reveal your images and patterns. The blades are precision made from high-carbon steel. Cutting edges stay sharp and are easily maintained. The blades are interchangeable in the high-impact thermoplastic handle, which also comes in the set. The handle allows an exceptional grip and is ergonomically designed to minimize hand fatigue.

The set includes a manual, sharpening strop, polishing compound and an 11-pocket tool roll for a great value. Additional blade profiles are available to extend your capabilities.
