Bunki and all-
Sorry. A bone folder is a tool used by bookmakers (and others, no doubt) for
scoring and creasing paper. A "real" one is made of bone, is fairly flat and
comes almost to a point at one end. You use the almost pointed end to score
and the side to smooth creases to make them sharp. They have a wonderful feel
to the hand ! They are anywhere from 4-8" long and cost from $5-$10, too
expensive for the average middle school budget. That's where the free counter
chips come in! The kids love to see the real thing tho and call theirs bone
folders too!
