Woodcarving Knife

X3261

The X-ACTO Wood Carving Knife is a great tool for many different carving projects. Designed for wood carving, the Wood Carving Knife is also great when working with linoleum and plastic. Its concave blade allows the artist to make custom niches and cuts that a straight edge would prove difficult. The wood carving knife handle is standard with most X-ACTO knife blades (No. 2, 15, 18, 19, 22, 23, 24, 25, 26, and 28) as well as other wood carving blades, routers and saw blades.

X-ACTO knives are the preferred cutting tool for a wide variety of professionals and hobbyists alike. Designers and artists love the X-ACTO knife’s ability to produce careful and meticulous cuts with consistency, while engineers praise the knife’s durable design and reliability.

X-ACTO knives can make precise cuts through a variety of different craft materials:

  • All grades of paper
  • Mat board
  • Foam board
  • Delicate fabrics
  • Sheet metal
  • Plastic
  • And more

The original X-ACTO knife has been praised for more than 50 years as the standard for precision. Attaining this level of precision, accuracy and reliability starts with supreme quality craftsmanship. All X-ACTO knives are built with a carbon steel blade for a reliable cut every time. Additionally, they are crafted with a sleek design that fits comfortably in the hand, allowing you to continue making the precision cuts needed to finish the job, no matter how long it takes.

Picking the Perfect Mat

You've finished your latest masterpiece, and now it is time for framing. Using a mat around an art piece both protects the glass from touching the art, but also enhances your art by giving your eyes the needed breathing room between art and frame without cutting off your art. It can help accentuate and draw your eye to the focal point of your piece. But what color should you choose? Try squinting your eyes in front of your piece and note what the prominent color is. That color would be a good option to start with. White is the most common mat color used, and if you are framing a number of pieces together it can be a great way to unify them. Using a crisp white mat can add height and width to your pieces while still letting your focus on each separate piece. Don't skimp on size. A large mat can instantly give a small art piece more presence. And remember, acid-free mats are the best choice for preserving and showcasing your art forever.
