Why is the metal so thin?

The thickness allows us to etch and form a very sharp tooth economically. Just remember to use a light touch and let the sharpness of the tool do the cutting for you. Applying a great amount of force is not necessary.


 

Where are these tools made?

The blades are manufactured in our plant in Russellville, AR, USA and the handles are molded and assembled in Mexico.


 

Does the rotary shaper rotate clockwise?

Yes, the Microplane Rotary Shaper rotates clockwise. Materials being fed into the shaper should be fed left of center to reduce kickback.


 

Do I have to sand after I use your tools?

If you are looking for a polished finish, then yes you will need to use sandpaper after using our tools. Our fine and coarse blades offer a rough-cut and sanding is needed for a nice, polished finish.
