Lino Cutting Wooden Handle Tool
Lino Cutting Wooden Handle Tool The most basic, versatile and inexpensive tool is the Speedball Linoleum Cutter. This is sometimes the first tool linocut artists use. It’s cheap (under $10), dependable and comfortable. If you’re not familiar with this traditional tool, it works with six interchangeable blades that store in the plastic handle.
Woodcarving tools that can be used for linoleum
I bought a Power Grip carving set to use for my woodblocks, but they also work great for linoleum. The handles are longer and thinner than Pfeil and Speedball’s but they also have a nice range in size.

Soften with Linseed Oil
Put a drop of linseed oil on a rag and rub it over the surface of your lino. It’s traditionally thought to keep the lino supple. Do this before you warm the lino, and it’ll sink in nicely.
