Multiple lining tool
The multiple lining tool allows the engraver to create hatched shading effects by engraving multiple parallel lines at the same time. It achieves this by having two or more cutting blades, which are available in different grades or sizes, such as the density of lines. The resulting hatching has a mechanical look.
