Standard Black Jacks – Small – Cutting Edge Products by Red Hot Metal Inc.
8″ Blade Length x 1.5″ Handle Width x 16.5″ Overall Length
Lightly sprung and exactly right for Venetian-style goblets, cups and other light glassblowing work.
Jeff Lindsay chose to make our jack handles from cold-formed spring steel, and that’s a good thing. Cold forming gives the handles just the right memory and a little spring in their step. Because high-grade spring steel is prone to rust, we treat our jacks with a special inhibitor that darkens them. Hence our jacks are black.
For the blades Jeff chose another type of high quality spring steel with excellent wear properties. The blade does not wear out! These blades have an oval profile and taper to a slight point. Best of all, they’re extremely smooth, so they slide easily across the glass without scratching. It’s definitely the jack for your trade!
