The Saunders 4 blade easels are confusing for a good reason.

The model (that I have) that has blades that can be opened to accommodate an 11 x 14 print, allows me to remove the blade assembly. When I do, I am left with a non-adjustable, 14 x 17 easel.

I prefer to describe it as an 11 x 14 easel, but understand why Saunders calls it a 14 x 17 easel.
