Comments about Richeson Plastic Painting Knives:
I ordered these for beginner students. Admittedly, you can't expect a lot for the price but they are difficult to work with.
Bottom Line No, I would not recommend this to a friend

Simple but Good Quality
from Los Angeles, CA
Not much you can say about a palette knife, but hey, this one's pretty good!
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend
so handy :)
By visual artist
I´ve been using these little knives for years, in all kinds of art related projects, from printmaking to painting to mosaics. They come in different sizes and shapes, perfect for each application. If you cleaned them and take care of them they will last a very long time, not a disposable tool (fortunately).
from New mexico
Great set of painting knives for my acrylic painting: different shapes to give different effects, well made even though they are just molded plastic. Excellent value for the price and well worth the purchase.
basic palette knife
from St Pete, FL
great basic palette knife for the money.
Very nice palette knives
By Lucy Lu
These are very strong plastic palette knives, I was really impressed with how solid these are. I am sure they will last a while but just got them so I'll have to let you know.
Better than expected
After years away from oil painting I decided to start again. Unforunately, all of my old painting tools and supplies are gone so I have needed to buy new. What an expense! I got these knives hoping they would last until I could afford to buy metal ones. They are working so well I might not need metal ones for awhile. They are sturdier than I expected and the price was great!
Great products. Perfect for the Art Foundations classes!

Used in higher education foundation classes.
OK for beginner workshop
from Charlottesville, VA
I teach an introductory oil painting workshop for seniors every year, all materials included. These work fine for the duration of the workshop, but I always advise participants to buy a decent stainless painting knife if they plan to continue. Kind of feel they would snap if used for an extended period. These are definitely not heavy duty, but ok for a limited academic purpose.
new to knife painting
from grenada, ms
I just started using knives for painting, so I am no expert. One of the reasons I bought the plastic knives. I was very satisfied.
