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.

sharp blades are a must for cutting linoleum
from Metrowest Boston, MA
Comments about Speedball Linoleum Cutters:
Regarding price, I don't know of a competitive brand but these seem reasonably priced. I like the disposable blades so I can always have a sharp one. This is kind of like reviewing #11 Xacto blades. They do what they're supposed to do; I go through a lot of them so I like to buy in bulk.
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

This tool is perfect! All five blades are sharp and click into the handle easily. I use mine on soft-kut print blocks and it makes it so was to carve.

Speedball Lino Tools are not speedy to change blades
By Art Class - Middle School
from Des Moines, IA
The blades stick in the heads and are not easy to switch out. I did not anticipate this as I have used other brands and they can be smoothly inserted and removed without much work. I have found that a pair of pliers might be handy when using these. I will not purchase this brand for classroom use again.
Bottom Line No, I would not recommend this to a friend

I love this product
from Honduras, CA
I use this product with my students in different class. They made a wonderful works with it.
Sturdy and precise
from Omaha, NE
I have been a classroom teacher for 16 years. I have tried the off-brand, less-expensive lino cutters and they do not work as well. The blades that are supposed to fit in the pen holders do not fit and can easily slip out. The Speedball cutters are sturdy and sharp. They fit comfortably in in the hand. The blades can be switched out with ease.My only complaint is the small piece that holds the blade snug can be easily lost by students, and then the cutter is no good. I wish they sold this piece separately as a replaceable part.
This product worked awesome!! I created some wonderful pumpkins for my grand daughters. I love that that blades are stored so easily.
Great for the Art classroom!
By Kim The Art Teacher
from Boise Idaho
These are great for the classroom because they are easy to handle and gives your hand a lot of movement while cutting. As an art teacher, I use these for all our print making projects.
This is a case of "it can happen to you" blues . . .
from Dallas, TX
I read some of the bad reviews for this product but ordered this set hoping that Speedball had worked out the production "glitches" that have seemed to plague the blades. Long story short, the blades do not fit into the sleeve without a considerable amount of force. Further, there are a few of the blades that are burred and unusable. I re-read the reviews today and would have to say that based on my own experience that I would not recommend this product. Sadly, the poor quality of this set has cost me production time -- something I cannot gain back. I will be reaching out to Blick to attempt a return.

Great linoleum cutters
I use the cutters to carve pumpkins. These cutters are great for the small details. I love the storage in the handle. The small cutters would be easy to lose if you didn't have the storage.
