We drew inspiration for this design from our conversations with Frank Mowery, one of the leading paper conservators in the world. This Non-Stick bone folder has a rounded tip with a one inch radius. It allows for easy separation of papers and will not damage delicate papers.
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.
