This is a perfect tool for damage free lifting of delicate papers. The narrow end is flexible and easily bends to get into the narrowest spots. The tool has an ivory finish and fits perfectly in your hand. It was "a hit" at the 100th anniversary of the Guild of Bookworkers in New York City. One of our customers made a comment that this tool is addictive, "as soon as you get it in your hand you don't wont to let it go".
Our bone folders
are made of a specially engineered non-stick material which offers a
number of benefits over bone and regular plastic. Customers tell us
that one of the biggest benefits of our bone folder is the non-stick
properties, which means that adhesives, inks and paints will not stick to it.
If you use a traditional bone folder today, 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. In fact, our biggest problem is that our bone folders last so long, once you buy one you will not need another one.
