Just coming back to marquetry after many years and want to gt the right knife handle and blades for cutting thin marquetry veneers. Can you advise please?

Hi Geoff, Thank you for your question.

I don’t think you can go far wrong with the No.3 Surgical handles and our 10A surgical blade or the No.11/11P if you are looking for a finer point and working with light weight materials / veneers.

We will have now published An Expert’s Guide to Craft Knives on our craft website so you may find that interesting as well.
