Info on Sizes, Shapes, and Flexibility

Oakblade palette knife is a tube handled painters tool platform made from Stainless steel and Titanium in Canada that is unlike any other! Invented in 2016 by Engraving artist Ray Oak Hyder and carefully refined with hundreds of painters lending input .

 Each handmade knife in inventory will have its own photos and exact measurements listed (which will vary by a small degree from the shapes namesake).   

All shapes are available in up to three levels of flexibility that is measured via grams of pressure applied from blade contact at the lightest touch to the heaviest when blade fully flexed.

Look for the Average Contact Pressure range listed with each Oakblade palette knife to help determine the right level for you. Test existing palette knives at home on a digital scale for reference.

Average Contact Pressure range: 200 - 450+ grams.
