Having the right tools at your disposal can make all the difference when assembling miniature figures, model kits, or in any hobby that demands precision. And a hobby knife is an absolute must-have tool, regardless of whether you are into military modelling, miniature assembling, or wargaming!

The Army Painter’s Hobby Knife is a surgical scalpel with razor-sharp and very precise blades that allow you to make clean, accurate cuts, ensuring that parts fit together perfectly.

The hobby knife is an incredibly versatile tool you can use to remove mould lines and excess material, enhance details, or make custom modifications like adding scars, weathering effects, or other unique features. It’s not limited to model-making but can be used in various hobbies, such as crafting and woodworking.

The hobby knife – craft knife, precision knife, or hobby scalpel as it’s also called – is a fundamental tool for all wargamers, miniature assemblers, and hobbyists alike. Whether you're trimming excess plastic, removing flash from miniatures, or carving intricate details, The Army Painter’s Hobby Knife is easy to use and designed to make your work shine.

The slim and ergonomic handles are rubber coated, making it easy to grip and allowing for complete control when working on various tasks and in tight spots where close-up control and attention to detail are required.

Although the Hobby Knife can be used to cut components from the sprue, we recommend you use a Plastic Frame Cutter for this, as a Plastic Frame Cutter provides more controlled and precise cuts than a hobby knife can do.

The Army Painter’s Hobby Knife easily cuts through most materials and through resin, plastic, and metal miniature pieces. The set includes 5 extra blades, size #11, in a container.

The Army Painter’s Hobby Knife set contains:

  • 1 Hobby Knife
  • 5 extra hobby knife blades
