Essential kit items: Nori punches

I'm no paper cut artist.  Nor do I have the time. So an essential equipment to have in your bento kit is some nori punches.  Wanna see mine? 

Actually this photo is old. I have more.  I'll take another photo one day. ^^

Back to the Punch! -line  Ha!  I kill myself. *snicker*

Punches that workFor that clean upper cut, I recommend these Nori Punches:

It is good.  Its one of my favourite Punches, never fails and doesn't drive me nuts.

This punch has great straight lines.  pefect for cat whiskers and severe eyebrows.  (I'm very good and doing grumpy onigiris ^^)   I seem to only use these two punches to make my faces.  The others are just options.
Note: I had terrible trouble with the Niko Niko Punches.   If I used one sheet of Nori, I found the cuts were jagged and not clean.  I tried sharpening it with foil but  that didnt work.  The only way I could used them was to punch through 4 sheets.  of that only 1 set of shapes would come out okay-ish.  Ugh!  I should really move them out and into the craft box for paper punching...
