    Yep

    Their like a plastic type chisel scraper to put it simply.
    About 20mm wide 150mm long, you can re sharpen the edge.
    They are handy to help lift the corners of vinyl, once you get the knack they are good.

    Obviously a personal preference.

    havent seen them before nik, you got a link?

    sounds like a larger version of the Lil Chizler. i have half a dozen Chizler’s in my box. very handy for removing legal addresses and as tim says, gettting the edges of graphics up quick to allow you to pull them away. no damage to the vehicle either.
    Chizler’s have been out for many years now and i think JAG did them too…
    the only down side of the JAG is that they are brittle and can chip pretty easy, but still a brilliant little tool for the money.

    i was topping up my tools and seen it on the jag supplies website, I use the wee pink chisler’s as well, it was the size of this item that got me, and why it had to be so long…anyway Ive just re-read the item description and it is for removal of adhesives 🙄 Im gonna buy one and try it 😀

    The lift sticks don’t chip and resist quite a bit of heat.

    I just scrape a new scalpel blade across the edge at an angle to scrape off some of the plastic and create a new edge.

    I use them Nicola, I find them brilliant as you can lift the corner of a graphic to peel away without damaging paintwork. Made from ‘aircraft plastic’ whatever that is. you can be quit firm without scratching. Not expensive either so get several, as Tim says you can resharpen, I just rub the cutting edge against sandpaper.

    When you get then Nicola you will have to do a comparison report and let us know the results. I use the lil chizlers same as Robert so interesting to know how these compare.
