Ink knives come in many shapes and sizes. We have used everything from a standard putty knife to high end artists’ paint mixing knives. Some inks are dense and thick and others are runny and drippy. Each ink may have its own ideal knife for lifting and mixing. We found these stainless steel spatulas to be really great for mixing a range of inks. They have some flex and give (but not so much as to snap on you when you you are trying to get through the Crème Bruleé layer of a vintage can of ink—like that high-end oil paint mixing knife from the other day.
We offer this ink spatula with a stainless steel blade and a wooden handle in two sizes branded with the Dry Inc logo:
• Regular 4 ½" blade (a good size for small to medium ink mixing)
• Large 7 ¾" blade (for bulk ink mixing)
