Artist Karol Pomykała is the creator and originator of this tool:
"When I started my adventure with point linocut, I discovered (to my surprise) that there were no needles on the market, that would let me cut perfect dots.
Reaching for half-measures often ended in sore hands and frustration, because the effects were far from ideal. For years, I’ve been looking for a tool that would finally allow me to comfortably create and implement my ideas. By trial and error, I constructed various types of chisels and needles, experimenting with the shape of the handle and blade angles.
Finally, I’ve managed to design the perfect tool for my creative work, which I gladly share with you.
Every needle is handmade with the utmost care. The right angle of sharpening allows the needle to make the points the ideal size and depth. The needle is small and very light, designed not to tire out the hand. Thanks to the special shape and size the working process is easy and gives a lot of satisfaction."
