These Italian-made linoleum knives feature tempered steel blades that have been thermally attached to shock-resistant fiberglass handles and reinforced with a brass containment ferrule. They're ideal for engraving matrices in linoleum, and their sturdy construction also allows them to be used with a hammer for carving wood.

Solid Set for a Good Price
By Kris the Creative
from Walled Lake, MI
I really like these knives and the handles are very comfortable.
Poor Quality Control
One of the five chisels had a good size nick in it. I'm surprised Quality Control didn't spot it and reject it. The set was very inexpensive, but that's no excuse.

Not as good as lower priced options
from Muskegon, MI
My students and I had difficulty using these knives as the angle of the blade was too straight and the handles difficult to hold. I would like to return them

Nice Linoleum cutting knives
By Miss Sunbeam
from Greensboro, AL
the handles don't come off - the knives are beautiful to look at and to handle.
Work great at an awesome price
By John Andrew
from Darlington, S.C.
I have had these tools for about 3 years. They are a more than a fantastic deal for the price. I cut hard gray lino and also soft and hard wood as reliefs to print with. I use a grease compound and leather strop to keep them honed. I do have some more expensive Japanese knives that I use also. However, I use both sets together. Cheap or Expensive they must be kept sharp to work well. As these tools come in medium sizes, I use smaller sized Japanese knives and gouges to do more intricate work. Nevertheless, I enjoy these Italian knives also.
Just what I needed.

I use them to carve leather-hrd clay and they work perfectly. I am experimenting with carving my clay pieces and I am pleased with the results

Do not recommend
from Upper Marlboro MD
I was very disappointed with this product. The only other review for them said they were great so i figured for the price they must just be a great deal. Sadly the handles are cheaply made and the blades poorly attached. They just feel cheap in your hand and even with my best attempts to sharpen the blades they just wont give a good cut. Maybe these would be better for softer materials then grey linoleum but I would never recommend purchasing this set.

Excellent Lino Knives
from Goulburn NSW Australia
These are excellent lino knives and a cut above (sorry, pun not intended) above the usual. Top quality Japanes knives for woodcuts are very expensive but worth it for WOOD but lino is different and these fit the bill nicely. They cut clean and handle well. I give them light touch up on the supplies stone then a polish with jewellers rouge on a chamois or strop (just get a 6" strip of leather or use the back of an old belt)before I start a new piece. They come out of the box ready to go so maintaining that edge is easy.I bought the basic set then added a wide U and a large flat to make up a set that I like.The usual knives available in Australia a cheap and nasty Chinese or Japanese cutter but even with the added postage these ones are a much better buy and for only a few dollars more.
