This high quality tapered palette knife has a stainless steel blade and a hardwood handle, which is riveted through the blade for robustness and not easily damaged. The knife blade is springy and polished, so is easily cleaned. The 4 inch bladed knife is ideal for transferring watercolour from the jar to the palette. Its tapered point is just right for getting the last bit of colour off the bottom and sides of the jar.
