Painting knife

Painting knives

A painting knife is an artist's tool with a flexible steel blade used to apply paint to the canvas.

It has a pointed tip, lowered or "cranked" like a trowel, suited for painting on canvas. The blade can be of different lengths and shapes : triangular, rectangular or more diamond like.

A painting knife is different from a palette knife which has a straight wide blade and a rounded tip, better suited for mixing paints on the palette.
