A great needle for miniatures! A great needle for any design. Ultra Punch patented Ex.Sm.(fine)needle tip in Ultra Punch adjustable handle. The #1 setting on this needle is 3 settings shorter than normal needle tips. The tip is extremely short so very short loops can be formed, but is adjustable for any loop length. The price is differnt than other Ultra Punch needles because a new die had to be made to make this needle possible.
