Sources or substitutes for Kodak etching knives : LUSENET : B&W Photo - Printing & Finishing : One Thread

Kodak apparently no longer makes etching knives. Does anyone know of any sources for these knives, or any suggestions for a substitute that will work for B&W negative retouching? Thanks.

I've never seen a real Kodak etching knife, but I have used an X-acto knife for the purpose--you can get blades in many different shapes.
