Before and After

Removing flash has never been more precise, or more satisfying. If the Flash Master can handle the flash on the face of this 1/72 figure, think what it can do in YOUR hands!


Will It Work With My Blade Handle?

The Flash Master works with most popular blade handles. However, the blades are small and super-slim, so the important question is: Does your blade handle close completely? If yes, you are all set. We’ve tried it on a number of blade holders from many manufacturers. If you’re in doubt, we know for certain that they will work with the X-Acto #1, the X-Acto #2, the Xacto Curve, and the X-Acto Griptster. If your blade holder won’t tighten to a complete close, chances are that there is some oxidization on the threads. (You may not have asked it to go that far in years.) Usually backing it off completely and knocking some old gunk off the threads does the trick. Reassemble and tighten without any blade in place to see if it closes until there is no gap in the blade slot. Then, back off just a little and slide the Flash Master in place and re-tighten.

Another Tool For Your Tool Kit

The Flash Master is not a replacement for the tried and true blades we all use. Think of it as an additional tool.

Been working with it for about an hour now. First comments: 1) LOVE the pliability of the blade, took me two minutes to figure it out, but awesome idea! 2) Also quite versatile: been using it on hard plastic (Italeri), softer (Revell) and even metal (some obscure manufacturer from Deutschland): the blade stays true and sharp, which is great.

As a professional model builder, I have tried all kinds of products that claim to improve the model building process, and most fall flat. When I first tried the Flash Master Blade, I was blown away! At last there was a flexible blade that would allow you to cut and shape in the most delicate and intricate areas. You can even sculpt with precision using these blades. These blades are also extremely long lasting, the tip doesn’t break off and they can be used on everything from soft plastic to hard styrene. As a pro modeler, I can’t recommend these blades more!!!

I've enjoyed using them so far. Working on any type of softer plastics is a breeze. I used to dread trying to work on any Reapers Bones line but not so any more. I have cleaned up a bag full of the buggers in just a few days.

They work very well at cleaning up flash but also as a seam scraper, sprue gate remover and removes unwanted details.

– Paul W.

I have given one a quick tryout and am impressed, they certainly beat the normal inflexible scalpels and anything else I have tried when working on 1/72 figures.
