In every project, you will need a cutting tool at some point or another. The NuBlade+ is an essential tool for creating with polymer clay. It is strong enough to cut clay from the bar, cuts perfect edges, straight or curved, and is sharp enough to cut canes with out any torque or twisting. It is important to clean blades frequently; this will keep them sharp and keep your colors clean and separate. Similar blades may be used, however, it is strongly suggested that you use the NuBlade+ because of its permanently attached handles, which provides added control and safety.

Tip: When using a metal blade, lightly sanding the blade’s surface (not the cutting edge) will lessen cutting resistance.
