Craft knife?

Hi

I was just wondering what kind of knife the orange craft knife is that Paul uses and where to get them? I can’t seem to find one with large blade’s like Paul’s.

Thanks 🙂

In the free lessons Paul has got a list of suppliers I as far as i understand it its a florist craft knife they are about £1.50 you can pick them up in Hobbycraft.

The orange one is from country baskets, you can pick it up in the florist isle. Also the large knife is a 12″ cake knife. I bought a 19″ one from the craft company online but it’s too big. Just search 12″ serated knife and itl come up

Hi kirkiechick

The knife Paul uses can be bought in any good kitchen shop. I think it is a small parring knife. Paul has also been seen using a pink Kuhn Rikon style knife. The orange handled knife is in the style of a Napoli potato knife, but these are pretty costly. Try kitchen stores like Lakelands,  supermarkets and online, I’m sure you’ll spot something similar. Alternatively you can get boxed craft knives in art shops, online or even on market stalls.

Thanks, I have several craft knives but the blades are much smaller. I also have a paring knife but it has a pointed tip whereas Paul’s is more rounded? I will have a look for the Napoli knife. It really is driving me crazy!

Look in Amazon rather than ebay.  Have a look at Gustav knives as well, I’ve used those for the past 30 odd years and have a small black handled knife like Paul’s, but of course mine is pretty ancient.
