The square shape easily fits in your hand, giving you more leverage to maneuver and use the broad side of the tool. We like to use it during the gluing process to squeeze out the bubbles between two surfaces.
We make our bone folders from a strong, non-contaminating and non-stick material, which means that adhesives, inks and paints will not stick to it.
If you use a traditional bone folder made of bone or plastic, you know its tendency to get worn down, discolored, and stained with age; this leads to messy clean up or worse, contamination of your next project. This is not the case with our bone folder; it will only get smoother and shinier with age while making clean up a snap and best of all it won't leave a shiny mark when rubbed over your work.
