One of the most important tools for bookbinding is the bone folder. The simple and effective handling of this traditional tool makes every step of the folding process easy. In our shop you will find different variations of bone folders, both from bone and from wood.
Bone folders made of bone
Traditionally, the bone folder is made of leg bones, so the name combines the function and material – the fold is created by the (bone) leg. Bone is particularly suitable as a material, the bone folder is robust in every application and is handy and very easy to use. At the same time, the paper fibres are treated gently and, apart from the desired fold, no residue remains on the material.
Folders made of wood
The ideal properties for folding are not limited to the material bone, which is why wooden folding legs are now also being used more and more. The folding tools made of bamboo have a tradition in Japanese bookbinding and are becoming increasingly popular due to the plant-based raw material.
