Great for peeling off backers!
I don't own a die cutting machine, I got this specifically to remove the backer from things that are self-adhesive. I used it on some Velcro that had a sticky back- the backer was impossible to remove with my fingernails. This tool was able to work under the backer and get it off even when the glue was so sticky it gummed up the pointed end of the tool. The tool cleaned off easily. I also used this to help me position tiny alphabet stickers when I was making my own tabs for a very small binder. I was able to see what I was doing much more clearly, and wasn't worried about getting skin oils on the adhesive.
