An improved paint edger is provided having a laterally elongated edger head supported by a perpendicularly affixed handle. The blade itself is formed integrally to the frame, but demarcated by a joint aligning the tapered upper surface. Opposite the tapered upper surface, a flat lower surface is recessed by an offset of a specific dimension to receive an absorbent tape. The tape is affixed to the flat lower surface by an adhesive, and provides an absorbent material to provide a wicking action for paint that may pass the outer edge. Finally, the tape is provided with a non-porous barrier film that prevents passage of fluid (paint) and allows the paint to be retained within the tape.
