Protect your hands the easy way!

If you're anything like us when you're silversmithing and end up with file marks on your nails, sore fingers or even mild burns then you'll love our fantastic new alligator skin tape!
Alligator skin tape is a brilliantly clever tape that is designed to protect your fingers from minor cuts, abrasions and burns, so there's no more need for sore fingers after you've finished one of your silvermithing projects!
As we're all a little prone to filing grooves in our nails or burning our fingers a little here at Kernowcraft, as soon as it arrived in our office we were all excited to have a go with it and see if it really works. We have to admit we were a little sceptical, how can a tape possibly be strong enough to protect your fingers from cuts? But after we all had a go with it in our own workshops we couldn't believe how well it protects fingers, it's definitely going to become a staple in our workshops, especially when we're working on smaller and more intricate designs.
This tape is self-adhesive and sticks to itself rather than your skin meaning that there is no sticky residue left on your skin when you remove it (unlike a plaster!) All you need to do is wrap the clever tape around your fingers to cover the area you want to protect and get started on your silversmithing projects. Although you'll look a little 'green fingered' the fantastic tape protects your fingers without restricting your movement, so you can get on with small and fiddly jewellery projects with ease.
We love it when we discover a new product that really works and we're sure that alligator skin tape will become a workshop essential for you as well, how did our fingers ever survive before?!
