    Hi all, I'm after the little tool that is used to snap off a snap- off blade.

    I've looked everywhere but can't find it (Doesn't help I don't actually know the name)

    Supplier in the U.K would be best,

    Many thanks,

    It is included with All snap knifes I have seen. It is usually in the End cap.

    I call it a table edge... just stick a piece of tape over the bad blade and push down on the table.

    Thanks for the replies,

    In response to your replies:

    There is an end gap but there all pretty bad.

    Pliers are an option although not what I'm referred too, as too a table edge.

    It's like a little box that holds the blades too.

    thanks,

    Real men, bite them off in their teeth. Girlie-mans use a tool.

    I have no idea how you came up with that conclusion ?? :help

    The OP asked a question for the name of a tool, which I answered what they are called on this side of the pond and later went on to answer how we do it.

    Nothing in either post referred to one way or the other as to what we are, but how we do it and what it's called.

    Besides, it was a joke on some old European actor who used that terminology. :popcorn:

    my blades don't seem to want to snap at the indented places. most of the time, even after using pliers, i get this random angle on the end blade. i'm pretty sure that not having the usual angle on the end affects the performance of the cutter.

    make sure the snap line is barely out of the holder or even partially in it to prevent odd breaks.
