Selecting Plastic Blades With A Fine Point

When you need plastic razor blades for crafting, you want to find ones with a consistent, sharp cut. You also wish to have flexible material for use but enough rigidity for at least several services. Because of the plastic structure, the blades will wear down, so you want a pack that will give you the highest value for your values.

When To Use A Plastic Craft Knife?

We recommend using plastic knives on painted or glass surfaces. Plastic will not scrape the surface of either material. That also makes it suitable for working on vinyl surfaces; while vinyl is durable, it cannot afford any superficial damage or scraping.

Plastic hobby knives are also good when you need to make contoured cuts. Curved surfaces can make it harder for a stainless steel blade, with a rigid material designed to withstand natural elements. Because plastic is a flexible material, it can bend without breaking while doing the necessary scraping for vinyl on cars for detailing, house turrets, and other materials.

You can use plastic knives also to handle any removal of transfer paper or vinyl backing sheets. If you have to apply designs in reverse, sometimes you need tools that can lift the edge of thin material. Fingers can leave smudges on the vinyl, which you don’t want on any high-quality apparel.

You will generally use plastic razor blades for scraping residue or other unwanted material. Such material can include tree sap, glue, dirt, stubborn tape or transfer tape, wax, or even drywall joint compound.

The blades need to be even upon first use, at least. If you want to use them for detailing, determine if the tip has a sharp cut and if you want a breakaway tip or not.
