Many years ago I spotted an advert (in Finescale Modeller possibly) for a craft knife with a difference. Instead of the usual scalpel blade it had two separate but parallel blades, the distance between could be adjusted. The idea was that varying widths of masking tape could be cut from your usual tape of choice. Is anybody familiar with this knife and if it is still available?

Dave,

Have a look at these...

www.sovereignhobbies.co.uk/products/inf ... ting-mat-a

They have 4 mats and are in varying styles/design options that will account for varying width of tape to cut...bu also in curves etc as well...

Cheers,
Phil :thumbs_up_1:

Hi Phil. That looks promising, I'll do a bit of research.
Cheers
