The Peeler is effective at removing silicone gasket material and also works well when removing paper or fiber gasket residue. The Peeler’s self-levelling conical blade does not dig or gouge into surfaces. Free rotation of the blade maintains a good, sharp cutting edge without nicks or flat spots. The Peeler features a short, easy-to-hold handle for close, powerful control of the blade. If necessary, the hardened steel blade can be re-ground and is easily replaced.
