If you use them with the bevel riding as a shear cutter, they are something more. That is not how the instructions read for the flat cutters, but it works well for details. A bit tricky learning, and I suspect that is why the sellers do not advertise the use that way.

Totally agree with the "shear Cut" I can start sanding acrylic with 400 and sometimes 600 after.

I'd say go for the medium ones. Or have 1 small and 2 medium. If you are going to do bowl deeper than 2-3 inches you will want at least 1 with a LONG handle for solidness.
