Hi guys, I'm really struggling trying to find small cutters i need a 1cm and 2.5 cm square cutters and just can't find them anywhere i've found plenty of square sets in tins etc but none have any that small.

If anyone knows where i may get these it would be most appreciated.

Thanks guys

I don't know if you'll be able to find them where you live, but it seems there's a brand of cutters for clay that might be that small. The brand is Kemper. On the first link, at the very end, there's square cutters and all the dimensions (looks like there's one that's half a centimeter). They're also at Amazon, it seems. The second link will show you how small they are compared to a hand. Hope this helps.

Some in the tiny shoe cutter set here: http://www.franklysweet.co.uk/products.html (they're the only ones I've been able to find, I looked without success for ages before I found these!)

...the shape of these is perfect - the corners are sharp, unlike a lot of the larger metal square cutters around.

Coral 3, I don't know the reason, but she needs a 1cm (10mm) cutter! That's so tiny that maybe she'll only be able to find it in tools for used for jewelry making.

I'm now curious about what's this tiny square cutter going to be used for! It looks like those Kemper ones that I found at that website go as small as half a centimeter, so they do exist, I guess.

The cutters in the link I posted are TINY, and do include a 1cm square. Here is what the set includes:

New improved Tiny Shoe Cutter Set £8.50
Shoe cutters; approx 4cm, 3cm and 2cm
Square cutters; 2.5cm, 2cm, 1.5cm, 1cm, 0.5cm.
Circle cutters; 2.5cm, 2cm, 1.5cm, 1cm, 0.5cm




I bought this cutter set myself specifically for the little square cutters...sometimes I want to cut small squares out of something bigger (for example cutting out little windows from a door or larger window frame). You can always cut actual squares by hand, but to cut and remove little squares from something larger is difficult.

A HUGE thanks guys I'll check these out and order them I'm making the "scrub up" cake from Debbie Browns extra naughty cakes book the bigger of the two cutters is for the tiles around the bath and the tiny one is for the floor tiles that go in between the larger ones.

I was thinking that i was going to have to mark this cake out with a ruler as i had come to a brick wall in my search for these but the cutter would just make it so much more effective.

You guys are great I really appreciate all your help and will post a pic of this cake when i make it next month.

Thansks again
