June 21, 2024

  A compass knife is a specially designed tool that is mainly used to cut out a round surface or carve circular grooves. Here are the details and features about compass knives:

1. Definitions and Uses:

  Compass knives are knives that can cut through round surfaces. It's like a compass that we usually use to draw, but at this point the brush becomes a cutter.

  Compass knives are used in many fields, such as cutting glass, steel plates, etc., and many circular shapes are cut with compass knives.

  Compass knives are also an indispensable tool in anime figure model making, mainly used to cut circles or carve circular grooves, as well as to draw standard arcs.

2. Structure & Design:

  Compass knives are composed of a tool holder, a centering cone and a radius adjustment rod. The knife holder is usually made of plexiglass or plastic, with the blade clamped in between for the actual cutting job.

  The centering cone is used to determine the center of the circle to be cut, while the radius adjustment lever is used to adjust the size of the radius of the cut.

3. Tips:

  Compass knives are used in a similar way to compasses used in drafting, but it is important to note that the blade is sharp and requires special care when using it.

  In the process of use, the radius of the compass knife should be adjusted according to the actual needs to ensure that the cut circle meets the design requirements.

4. Price & Purchase Recommendation:

  The price of compass knives varies depending on the brand, model, and features. In general, compass knives from well-known brands are more expensive, but they are also more reliable in terms of quality and performance.

  When buying a compass knife, it is advisable to choose the right brand and model according to your needs and budget. At the same time, it is necessary to pay attention to the user reviews and reputation of the product to ensure that you buy a high-quality and durable compass knife.

5. Precautions:

  When using a compass knife, make sure that the blade is sharp, and the cutting effect will be better. But at the same time, be careful of the blade scratching your fingers.

  Be stable during the cutting process to avoid cutting failure or damage to the material due to hand shaking or improper operation.

  Clean up the residue on the compass knife in time after use to keep it clean and sharp.

  Overall, a compass knife is a professional tool that is widely used in many fields, choosing the right brand and model, and mastering the correct use skills, can greatly improve work efficiency and cutting quality.
