I have been frustrated by the drag on my Xacto knife when cutting fondant and modeling clay - especially on detailed letters. It causes a bit of distortion, which never looks quite right when I "fix" it. I read somewhere that scalpels work better. I was frustrated by the number of different ones available. And some of them look VERY much like a standard Xacto. So, now I'm wondering...are they really better? If so, which ones work best for you?
Yes drag is always a problem isn't it!! I just gently place a finger on the icing where I'm cutting to stop it from dragging and just work slowly. It is very frustrating though. Hmmm, medical scalpels sounds like a great idea, they'd have to be super sharp!
