"Best scriber I've used yet"
Joe J. (Huntsville, Al)
I've been building models for more years than I care to mention and this is the best scriber I've found. Blades are very sharp and versatile, handle feels good in your hand, very easy to use. Pull action makes it nice to cut a straight line, but other edges are good to use to get in tight places. Cons are that glue joints are harder to cut than plastic so you must be careful and patient to make straight cuts because the sharpness of the blade seeks the path of least resistance, but with care it can be done. Also if your kits parts don't fit exactly right and you have joints that need putty, use the scriber to lightly clean out the joint to make your putty fill better. I highly recommend this tool to anyone who builds models!

"Lives up to the hype"
chriskca (Bothell, Washington)
I was using various tools on hand to do panel scribing, a hobby knife, an old dental pick, an old paring knife, a broken pin file, etc. I'd say my odds were typically 50/50 on making errors. I notice a number of reviewers and youtubers using this tool. Before I started my next model, I thought I'd pick one up. And...It works. The cutter's edge is a very sharp edge, the blade made of, what looks to be, a hardened steel (?), and the handle fits my palm comfortably. I'm guessing these features help make it easier to track existing panel lines. My odds on errors has decreased, with cleaner, straighter, better defined panel lines as a result. And it comes with two spare blades!

 
"This is a great scriber"
gvtooker (gvtooker@gmail.com)
Got this as a replacement for another scriber that I have used over the years, and one that I have never really been all that satisfied with. I think for me the difference comes in the actual action of the tool. The way this scriber works is that it is held parallel with the surface, and drawn back towards the modeler. After the initial pass to establish the line, I find that this tool tends to follow said line very well for repeated passes. The tool comes with three blades, two of which are mounted in the handle and one which is already mounted in the retractable holder. The handle itself feels weighty considering that it is made out of plastic and feels good in hand. The blades themselves are VERY sharp and capable of scribing a very fine line. One nice feature as well is that the inner part of the blade is also sharpened for ridge removal after scribing. Definitely a must have in any hobbyists toolbox.

Very nice tool here. Extra blade in the handle. Comfortable to hold. Easy to use.
