    Comments about Flexcut Pocket Jack for Carvin' :

    this knife is very sharp and carves well on small carvings. blade locks do not work when blades are closed but do when blades are open, which is the most important. also, blades stick together when opening so you have to be careful to close one and open the other without getting cut.

    Great knife, needs extra blade and case, but over all a nice piece. I do love the more advanced version of this one, but this is great for camping and not worry about water damage so much...just in case you get some rain in the tent..LOL Anyway, these blades are way better then any other knives I have tried in this scale, which is a surprise but will take the sharp edges where I can find them ...wear protective hand gear, these are VERY sharp blades..thank goodness!

    Comments about Flexcut Pocket Jack for Carvin' :

    The blades were sharp right out of the package as I would have expected from Flexcut, but there is a problem with closing and opening the blades. When you close the open blade or tool, if you apply very much pressure, both blades on that side drop down lower the the edge of the case making it impossible to use the finger nail slot to open it. There is nothing on the backside of the knife to stop this from happening other than the 2 plastic blade locks that bend downward to allow the blades to slip lower into the case. When this happens you have to use a small screw driver or some other small object to lift the blades high enough to use the finger slot. I am afraid that this will continue to worsen as the mechanism loosens up from use. I am not sure I want to keep this with this design flaw. Other than that the blade and tools work well.

    Comments about Flexcut Pocket Jack for Carvin' :

    The blades are sharp right out the package, however when you close them and push them down to close it you can very easily push both blades on that side down to where it can't be open them with just your fingernail. There is nothing on inside to stop the blades from being pushed past the point where it should stop other than the plastic locking flap which allows it to move too far down into the case. This problem may become worse as the newness of the mechanism loosen up. You have to pry the blades up with a small screw driver so you can open it. Thinking of senting it back.

    Comments about Flexcut Pocket Jack for Carvin' :

    Sharp as can be right out of the package. It carved nice and clean on basswood The tools do hang up on each other when folding a tool out from the handle, but it wasn't a big deal to close the one I didn't want. They're not tight--just snug. They lock sufficiently in place. And the locks work easily. I like the selection of tools. Having never used a scorp before, I'm getting used to using them. At the very least, I know I will be using the gouge and knife. The knife blade is sharp and maintains its edge. The blade profile is sufficient for general carving and a reasonable amount of normal detail. The handle is a little bit uncomfortable. I think the handle edges need to be rounded over a bit more. My solution is to do what I've recently started doing regardless of what tools I am using. I wear a Kevlar carving glove with the grip dots on both hands. It helps to grip the tool, lessens fatigue on my hand, and prevents inadvertent injuries to my index finger. I tend to ride up on the tool's working end for better control when doing fine detail. All in all--I like the Pocket Jack. And based on my usage so far, I'd recommend trying it out.
