3.0 out of 5 stars Is it really bone? Why so big?, January 9, 2012
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: Martha Stewart Crafts Bone Folder (Toy)
I have always done origami by hand, no bone folders, but when I saw a seasoned origami artist using one on a YouTube video, I had second thoughts. Truthfully, I had never seen such a thing and thought it was brilliant. I pictured those crisp, clean folds being cleanly created without my fingernails ruining my favorite yuzen origami paper that costs $1 a sheet. So, I ordered the most popular one on Amazon. First off, it says it's bone, but feels like it's plastic. I have no way to prove this. At least I can't think of a logical way to prove it without ruining the folder itself. Secondly, it is big. I am a woman, and no, I haven't got "man hands", but I do have big hands, and this folder still manages to feel ungainly in my hands. Also, because of it's size, I have trouble seeing past it to see what I'm trying to do while scoring the paper. I have yet been able to make a score mark where I intended to because I can't see the surface I'm working on. Maybe I should've done more research before buying it. I know that there are smaller bone folders available. I let the Amazon reviews guide me in my choice of which to purchase. The reviews can't always be right for me I guess. So, my review summary (and this is my opinion, not fact) is like this: If you want a plasticy-feeling folder that barely fits in your hands, maybe this will be good for you, but I doubt that it will work for anyone doing origami or any other small work on 4" or smaller paper. I'm buying a different one this week, maybe I'll have better luck next time!
