description

The stripping knife has almost the same shape as the stopping knife but the blade (approx. 2.5-12.5 cm) is stiff and less springy.

This makes it easy to remove wallpaper, soaked with remover, or old paint layers pre-treated with paint stripper. Also in combination with a paint burner, the paint layers can be cut off with the stripping knife. [MOT]
