Ours is a bespoke manufacturing service:  our skilled craftsmen can produce stunning new bookbinding tools from almost any image, pattern or existing tool. This level of attention to detail and expertise, coupled with our use of cutting edge machinery and technology, means that the finished product is a true work of art. Bookbinders wishing to emulate the finishing style of eras as early as the sixteenth century will benefit richly from the carefully-curated range of tools we offer. What sets Fine Cut apart from its competitors is our ability to offer the same level of quality workmanship whether your commission is a one-off or something mass-produced. Each item we produce is as perfectly formed as its predecessor - every time. 


Bookbinding is one of Fine Cut's longest-established divisions. As Fine Cut started to grow and expand throughout the 1980's, its dedicated bookbinding division became ever more renowned: benefiting from investment in machinery and technology, and the precision skills of some of the industry's finest craftsmen. 


Our extensive premises in Lancing is home to our dynamic range of machinery and production equipment, where our skilled craftsmen produce world-class bookbinding equipment. Our customers are diverse - from bookbinding hobbyists to libraries, restorers to all manner of other businesses - and their needs are ever-evolving. To meet these needs, we invest continually in our facilities to improve precision, quality and efficiency. With this approach, we maintain a competitive edge on all fronts: high quality, precision products, competitive pricing, and short lead times. 


Every one of our employees is a quality practitioner, and we strive together to create products of unparalleled excellence, meeting both technical and functional demands, and always exceeding expectations. Fine Cut is committed to absolute precision and consistency, promising that each product created is as perfect as the last one produced, thanks to our closely monitored inspection and stringent quality standards.  Thanks to this stringent attention to detail and an enduring commitment to quality manufacturing, we are proud to be holders of the Royal Warrant as well as ISO accreditation's.

We were awarded the prestigious Royal Warrant in 2004 for the continued supply of bookbinding tools to the Royal Household of Queen Elizabeth 2nd.
