The Swann-Morton No.3 Range of handles and blades is a light duty set of tools for the precision cutting of soft materials by craft professionals.
No.3 Range products are used in smaller cutting projects on soft or lightweight materials. They are used for mould cutting, model making, marquetry, jewellery manufacturing, aeromodeling, paper cutting and polysterine cutting.
There are three handles available in the range. Swann-Morton No.3 Handle is made of stainless steel and comes in two sizes.
No.B3 features a tapered octagonal body which offers precise fingertip control for extremely detailed craft and model work.
No.5A Handle is made from acrylic, providing a firmer grip, more lateral strength, increased stability and greater comfort for undertaking longer tasks. No.5A Handle is also suitable for use with medium density materials.
Every blade in the No.3 range fits the No.3, No.B3 and No.5A handles. Blades are sold in boxes of 100. For work with medium and heavy duty materials, please see the Swann-Morton No.4 Range.
