  1. i would love to know how you get your cuts so clean! i try my best but they’re never that clean, there’s always a grade from the bottom of the linoleum to the top of the cut

    1. Hi Joe,
      I make sure I keep my lino cutting blades sharp & work with a stone, wet/dry sandpaper and fine grinding paste to keep the blades nice and sharp to give a good clean cut. I have also found the best lino for me for what I want to achieve. Currently that is the grey ‘Silkcut’ lino here in Aus.

  2. Hey. That’s great info. Thank you for responding.

    I’ve found that the gray linoleum/hard rubber does give a better cut and print, but there’s something about traditional linoleum that keeps bringing me back tocit.
