Carbon Fibre Lifter. The carbon fibre lifter is a new tool to aid a conservator when mechanically lifting covering material, pastedowns and general delaminating. Lifting knives, Teflon tools, micro spatulas, Teflon coated tools, and bamboo Hera all have their place in a conservator’s arsenal. The carbon fibre lifter is between a Teflon folder and bamboo in feel: much thinner and more rigid than Teflon, stronger than bamboo and it slides easier. Very strong and flexible, though not indestructible. Great for paper, weak cloth, heavily embossed cloth, and lumpy, uneven boards.  It is flexible, yet provides unparalleled control even when it is in deep.  It is designed to slide between and separate adhered materials, but the blade is not really strong enough to split a board, like a knife can do.  The carbon fibre lifter is designed for sliding and prying lifting techniques.  It is also useful for reversing previous “repairs” like gluing a cloth case spine to the text block, given its thinness, strength, and long length. The cutting edge is rounded at the tip.
