I've started with the cutting tools. Like most modellers I have a wide range of knives, but these three would cover 99% of all of my needs, with some more specialised items being kept in the toolchest for odd jobs. They are; An OLFA 9mm snap-off blade knife, an OLFA 18mm snap-off blade knife and a Swan-Morton scalpel with a N0.11 blade.
My favorite knife is the OLFA 18mm version, however if I had to choose just one, I think it would have to be the Swan Morton Scalpel.
The next photo shows my main modelling saw. I think it is called a Jewellers Saw, but I have had it so long, that I am now not sure. I regularly swap blades, the one fitted in this photo is a tile-cutting blade, which has an all-round cutting edge, great for taking the heads of metal wargaming figures. Other blades have a variety of teeth per inch, depending on the cut needed.
One point about how I use this saw; the screws for holding the saw blade were on the other side of the blade when it was new, I reversed the screw and the plate to make sawing right-handed easier.
