When we think of our favorite blades, the "U" blade is definitely one of the first that comes to mind!
The curvature of the needles of the "U" blade is what sets this blade apart. Because of the curved nature of the blade- artists are able to easily achieve super natural curved (and crisp) hair strokes.
Using a U-blade can be intimidating, but trust us when we say...IT IS SO AMAZING and all things good happen outside of your comfort zone! We encourage you to try it (as with anything-give it a few times)- you will be so glad you did!
Here are some key pointers when using the "U" blade:
- The "U" blade is best used working off of the outer edge of the blade (between first 5 needles of either side of the blade) for the entire hair stroke (as opposed to the middle of the blade).
- Keeping your fingers nice and tight at the bottom of the pen will help ensure that you have full control of where your stroke is going to start and stop.
- As always, your blade should be at a 90 degree angle. When holding the "U" blade (or any blade for that matter) envision cutting raw poultry with a knife. The blade should be perfectly perpendicular to the skin and should not be tilted. This is to ensure that you get a clean, crisp hair stroke rather than a wide slit in the skin (this can cause ashy and wide hair strokes).
