Thanks very much - just what I need
This fantastic needle tool really is super sharp, with a very fine pointed tip.
If you have taken a class with Joy Funnell, you will know it is her (as well as a few other well-known tutors) must-have tool for cutting metal clay! The extra fine long point makes it ideal for cutting out the finest of lines and very small detailed shapes - the perfect tool for working with very fine and detailed templates and stencils.
The Pergamano needle tool is made to be slightly flexible and very durable and has a specially developed dirt repellent rubber for a soft but firm grip. In addition, the weight and the ergonomic design ensure an ideal distribution of pressure during cutting.
Size: 16 cm long
Comes with a transparent protective cap.
Also called Pergamano Perforating Tool 1-needle.
I like that. It makes working with Art Clay Silver a joy.
I bought this as I still haven't found a tool that I am really happy with when cutting wet metal clay, I still tend to go back to my scalpel even having bought this and the Quik Art Stylus tool, I have not yet tried the Quik Art finer stylus tool, as this Pergamano one was such a good price and Joy Funnel gives it the thumbs up I thought I'd try it first. I do use it and it is useful and the tip is fine and long as stated, I just don't use it as much as I hoped I would. There is nothing wrong with it it is well made and does a job but I suspect as with so many tools it is a personal preference thing!
