ABIG cutting tools are used to make your own stamps. With these sets, you can cut into carving blocks such as linoleum, SoftCut, and Speedy Carve. Lino cutting is actually cutting away the pieces that you do not want to print. What remains can be coated with ink and stamped with later on. Cutting tools come in all price and quality ranges. These small cutters have an excellent grip, made with good and solid materials, and also important: they aren't too expensive.
The cutters from the set have U and V shapes, and the set also comes with a knife. The set includes a stick to loosen stuck cutters. There is an open sleeve in the holder through which you can insert this stick.
How do you use the ABIG cutting tools?
The shape of the holders fit nicely in the palm of your hand. You can place your index finger almost lengthwise over the holder. Do not make the angle between your carving blocks too large by keeping the cutter low. What's great about this set is that it comes with 4 cutters, so you immediately have the right blades for your designs.
What is included with the cutters?
An ABIG cutting set consists of a handle with 4 loose cutters, 1 knife, and a stick to loosen the stuck cutters. You can insert the stick through the center of the holder and loosen the blade.
Note: the cutters are sharp because they work like blades. Always cut away from you and watch your fingers. Working carefully ensures that you do not cut yourself. The sharp edges ensure that you can work very precisely, so work carefully, and you'll love the tool!
