Welcome to dickblick
Speedball Linoleum Cutters are made of the finest quality steel with long lasting cutting edges.
Speedball Linoleum Cutters fit holders for standard Speedball lettering pen nibs. With firm printmaking materials such as linoleum, where a palm grip is needed, use them with the Speedball Linoleum Cutter Handle. With soft printmaking materials, a standard pen holder such as the Blick Pen Holder can be used.
Cutters are available in packages of 2 or boxes of 12. (Cutters cannot be assorted.)
For "pull-type" linoleum cutters, see Speedball Linozips.

versatile carving tool
from Olympia, WA
I use this cutter and blades to carve rubber stamps. I have three of the handles, so I can have three different blades loaded and at hand when I'm carving, which saves a lot of time fiddling around switching blades in the middle of a project.These are sturdy, well-made, afforable tools. Highly recommended.
Handy little carver
from Longwood, FL
I love that the extra blades store in the handle!
Great for minor projects
I use this inexpensive kit to carve into baked polymer clay.....in order to create textures, patterns, and an array of aging effects. I like the fact that the extra blades store right in the handle, so I don't lose them. And the low price makes it easy to replace blades that wear out or become dull. I would recommend this item to anyone who wants to carve into softer materials, not just linoleum.
from Nashville, TN
I bought this as a starter kit. I am not disappointed. Two handles and a nice selection of blades (which store in one of the handles)! Great value great brand

Cutters were fine
from West Valley City, Ut.
Cutters work fine. They didn't fit into the pens I also bot, but that was not the cutters fault- it was the cheap pens. Postage seemed very high for the weight. I will probably not order from Dick Blick again.

Speedball Lino Cutters: not what they used to be
from Pinehurst, NC
This is a review of the product being sub-standard, not Dick Blick.I bought the Speedball No. 2 Lino Cutter Assortment from Dick Blick in the past and they were a great product.I recently bought 4 more packages for a class I was teaching. Only now the blades don't easily go into and out of the metal head that secures them. Seems to be a struggle and juggle to get them in and out.One of my students wasn't able to remove one of the cutters, and try as I might I wasn't able to get it out either.I let Dick Blick know, and they were wonderful about shipping new ones and giving me a FedEx label to ship back the prior batch.Only problem is, the new batch is as bad as the last batch. I tried to put a cutter into the head and was struggling with it, and once in it wasn't being held in a steady position: it was rocking a bit.Today I figured I'd try another one of the packages to see if maybe that one was better. The blade is stuck in there and can't be released.I have just sent a message to Speedball letting them know that I'm having a problem with the current "quality" of their product. Until this gets resolved, I would not bother with further purchases of this product. I hope they return to creating better quality than this, and if so, that this review can be removed once quality is restored. But until then, I'd look for other producers.
Bottom Line No, I would not recommend this to a friend
Merchant response: Thank you for taking the time to share your experience with these lino cutters. Please know that we are working to rectify this issue with Speedball, and we're glad you've taken the time to bring this to our attention.
from Chesterfield, VA
I purchased these for elementary-aged kids to make designs in the lino print blocks. They worked wonderfully! They make smooth, accurate cuts and my 5-year-old could even make intentional designs. My only recommendation is that there is adult supervision and clear safety directions, such as NEVER making cuts toward one's hand or body or toward others, as the cutter could accidentally slip and hurt someone. They are very sharp, but with proper instruction, even young kids who can listen and who exhibit some self-control can use these and have fun.
