Utility Knife - Heavy-duty zinc alloy steel construction. • Contoured rubber grip for comfort and control. • Push button for quick blade release - no tools required. • Auto-loading mechanism for instant blade change
General purpose mallet with fibreglass shaft. • Delivers a gentle but firm blow with little rebound.
High quality steel rule permanently marked in metric and imperial graduations. • Includes hanging hole
The utility blade is used to cut tiles to within 5mm of walls. A blade is suitable only when the tiles are above 12-15 °C. Wearing tough safety gloves and using the steel rule, cut a straight line going over it 3-4 times getting progressively deeper. Bend the tile and it will slowly "give" at the cut providing a clean, straight edge.
For cooler, harder tiles you should consider using a hand-held electric jigsaw. We can supply these if required.
