Bonefolder - Ultimate Origami Weapon

Bonefolder - Ultimate Origami Weapon

Last week, I had a little surprise waiting for me when we got home from work. My hubby had apparently ordered a special Bonefolder from Nicolas Terry’s Origami-Shop! This was a surprise gift to me for Diwali – which is the Indian Festival of Lights.

Initially, I didn’t think that this Ultimate Origami Weapon (as it is advertized on Nicolas Terry’s shop) would be any different from the plastic bonefolders you get in Michaels or any other ones, for that matter. I used to use my fingernails to make the creases firm, initially and had gotten quite used to it. The term bonefolders came about as they were commonly made from the leg bone of animals such as cows and deers (not the one I got, though). The plastic ones you get in the stores these days are the synthetic options which are available, but are still called bonefolders.

While browsing through this online store a couple of weeks ago, I came across this item and remarked to my hubby that I couldn’t believe that such a thing could be specially made to order and sold for a considerably higher price as compared to the other simple types of bonefolders…and lo and behold! I got it in the mail just in time for my folding during the weekend!

This little piece of magic is truly awesome. I folded Hojyo Takashi’s Wizard, Quentin Trollip’s White Rhino using it, as well as Hideo Komatsu’s Sheep and I found out that this tool works great in creasing the paper and making the folds firm (better than my fingernails). It also helps in those tricky little folds where you need to squash fold bits of paper to form eyes, and such. This is because it has got a longish pointed protrusion at one end of the bonefolder, which serves this purpose. I found out that it works well with thick paper too, so you are not spending time trying to fold layers of paper, but in vain.

I couldn’t be happier with this gift and think its every bit worth it. It is made out of boxwood and is approximately 9 inches long.

Oh and in case you are wondering… I got hubby an Indianapolis Colts Jacket from the NFL Store. He is a big fan of them and is rooting for them to make it to the Super Bowl this football season.

I am now looking forward to Christmas 😉
