Craft knives are a traditional design staple. In addition to cutting up vinyl and materials, they can make heat press manufacturing more efficient. When you use them for heat presses, they can add more detailed cutting or correct errors.
Many different types of craft knives exist. They serve varying purposes when creating a product. The options mean you can find the right knife for handling vinyl.
Craft Precision Knives
If you order before 5 PM CDT, then you may qualify for same-day shipping. Always inquire about our products before making a purchase, since our stock is very popular and may run out quickly. We can also make recommendations on which craft knife is suited for your design needs.
When choosing a knife, prioritize ergonomics, comfort, and durability. Sharp knives are safer than dull ones, and stainless steel is a viable material that lasts for a long time while demonstrating corrosion resistance. As for ergonomics, you want a handle with a decent grip. Having a comfortable grip means that you are likely to retain control of the knife while cutting through the vinyl. Consider options that have a safety cap for when you are not using the tools. That way when storing the knives and steel blades you prevent potential injuries.
The EXCEL Aluminum Xacto Knife is a traditional take on the basic craft tool, that every art student is trained in using. One can use it for cutting wood, plastic, paper, and leather. It has a textured aluminum body that allows the user to grip the handle easily. Both the solo entrepreneur and the avid manager can use this for working with vinyl and cutting out designs.
If you prefer a handle that focuses on hand comfort and ergonomics, we can recommend the AK-4: Cushion Grip Art Knife w/ 3 Blades. You can switch out the blades easily when they have worn down from constant use. The anti-roll device will prevent any accidents from happening on the job, while the Handsaver comfort grip is designed to reduce any muscle staring. You also get two precision blades, 1 chisel blade, and the curved carving blade.
In other cases that require a more practical tool, you can use the SVR-1: Stainless Steel Slide Lock Utility Knife. This option is preloaded with a snap-off blade so that you can insert a new one using the slide mechanism when the first blade has worn down to a dull edge.
