ABIG Lino Cutting Tools – 5 blades in handle

  • ABIG Lino Cutting Tools are a professional set of 5 interchangeable lino cutting blades that come with a transparent plastic handle.
  • This lino-cutting-tool is cleverly designed to keep all your blades out of harms way but still close at hand.
  • The plastic handle has a compartment inside to store the 5 assorted cutting blades.
  • This set is compact, light and easy to use.
  • The cutting blades are made from hardened steel.
  • The set includes 5 different lino cutting blades – a veining tool, U-shaped embellishing tool, 3mm and 4mm hollow tools, and a contour cutter.
  • Inside the plastic handle is a metal pin, 7cm long to assist you to remove the blade in use.
  • They are considered a professional-quality lino cutting tool set.

TIP: Sometimes one can apply a lot of  pressure when cutting lino and the blade may get “stuck”, remove the little domed-lid and press the open side on a hard surface to easily push the blade out of the chamber.

Tips and tricks for carving lino:

Always carve away from your hands and body to avoid cutting yourself. Hold the lino block securely with your non-cutting hand.
Use a non-slip mat or surface underneath the lino block to prevent it from moving around while you’re carving.
Heat the lino gently before carving to make it more pliable and easier to work with, but don’t overheat it or it will warp.
Invest in quality, sharp lino cutting tools rather than cheap, dull ones which can be dangerous and produce poor results.
Try different shaped gouges (V-shaped, U-shaped, etc.) to achieve various mark-making effects in your design.
Regularly sharpen your tools using a sharpening stone or leather honing block to maintain a keen edge.
Take regular test prints of your carving progress using a brayer and ink to check your design and make adjustments as needed.
When carving intricate details, work in one direction first, then turn the block and carve the other way for a more consistent result.
Use a ruler to score a line on the lino first before snapping it to get a clean, straight edge when cutting the block to size.
Apply a thin layer of white watercolour paint over the surface of the lino before carving to create better contrast and visibility of your cuts.
