The accessory specialist has a new handle for its razor saws, making ‘plastic surgery’ more comfortable and accurate.
Any modeller embarking on even basic conversion work may need the use of a good razor saw, to remove sections of the model. They are just as handy for separating parts from a runner when the attachment points are overly thick, therefore lessening the chance of damage.
CMK has offered a razor saw for some time, but it has now produced a new handle, which is comfortable, easy to grip and works with all the firm’s blade shapes. It is available in a Profi Set (H1020), with CMK’s triangular and rectangular saw blades, and the provision both means you can tackle pretty much any cut you need with accuracy, neatness and precision. The blades are thin and the adjustable depth of the rectangular blade especially enables deeper cuts… ideal for the often heavy casting gates on larger resin parts.
We trialled it on a styrene aircraft kit to remove airframe sections along panel lines, and the results were impressive. The blades are so fine, with minimal flexing, that the cuts are neatness exemplified. It made short work of cutting resin, too. The Profi Set is worth every cent of the €20 asking price when ordered direct from CMK.
