Hi everyone, I have just bought a ST ox speedskim from eBay, which as just arrived today. I have used a friends, not sure of the make but it had a metal blade, (it may have been refina). This one comes with a flexible plastic one. My question is this, it has ridges on the blade, why? Surely it would be better if it was flat. What do the ridges do? Anyone used one and if so how good are they.

Hi, thanks for the reply. I have found the answer on there website.......

Are the ribs/lines supposed to be on the blade?

Yes – this is part of the Speedskim® design. The lines (or Ribs) grip the plaster/material and assist in the distribution. The lines give the blade traction and permit both flattening and ruling off operations.
