Sensitive flexible steel blade. Cranked Handle. What's the difference between palette knives and painting knives?

Palette knives, used for mixing paint on the palette, are stronger and less supple than painting knives. They have strength to mix and lift colors without snapping. Painting knives, on the other hand, have a thinner blade and are more supple. Designed for applying color to the canvas or panel, they are useful for certain painting techniques that demand bold, thick impasto layers of color. Most palette knives have a trowel shape allowing the painter's hands to stay free of paint.
