Bernina 504 Swiss Sew Essential Tool
Also known as the “Lady’s Knife”, the BERNINA Swiss Sew Essential Tool is an innovative pocket sewing tool featuring 17 different practical sewing gadgets. Together with the Swiss company WENGER, BERNINA has created an indispensable, tried-and-tested high quality tool set for sewing projects.
The range of tools includes everyday useful objects such as a textile marker with refills, a magnifying lens, scissors, needle threader, and tweezers. The set even contains special gadgets such as a bodkin, rotary cutter, and hem gauge. The individual gadgets are easy to remove from the tool and can be reinserted just as easily after use.
The model 504 has no conventional knife blade. Instead it has a large number of sewing related functions, several of them exclusive to this knife.
One rather unique item is a rotary cutter that uses round, replaceable razor blades. On the back side of this tool is a small notch that acts as a thread cutter.
Alongside is a seam guide, described in more detail in the Removeable Tools section.
An intricate folding plastic carrier takes up two layers. It houses a number of the model 504’s removeable tools.
On the backspring there is a hollow round awl, intended for punching lacing holes in leather or heavy fabric.
The following ‘regular’ tools are also included:
