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. This bone folder has a long and thin tapered end point. The point is rounded and flexible allowing you to go into finer and thinner areas.
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.
Size: 6 1/4" x 3/4" x 3/8"
