Product Information:

Character limit per line: 15

Flexcut blades, as the name implies, are flexible to give you more control over your cuts. Made of high carbon spring steel, the tool shank gives just enough to follow the contour of carving, eliminating the need to have a handful of traditional tools to finish a single profile. This unique material also contributes to its excellent edge holding capability as the shank is tempered like a spring while the tip is hardened to Rc 59-61, then hand honed and polished. The ash handles are ergonomically designed to increase the comfort and ease of use. Each tool is pre-sharpened and ready to use. There's a knife for every cutting and shaping application that might arise.

    My main knife for roughing out

    By  mikewisc

    About Me Avid Do-It-Yourselfer

    Comments about Flexcut Large Roughing Knife :

    I use this Flexcut roughing knife almost exclusively for major shaping of hand-held carvings. I own another knife made by a reputable small company that does hand forging, but don't use it nearly as much as this one. Why? The Flexcut knife has a shallower bevel, and slightly thinner blade overall. Over extended carving sessions, this makes a huge difference. The thinner blade and shallower bevel cut through the basswood with far less hand pressure required. I also find that this knife is easy to sharpen. I mostly use a muslim floppy wheel and special compound, followed by stropping, but every now and then work it over a water-stone. The handle is a bit small and the finish is slick. To correct this, I wrapped the handle in some inexpensive rubberized tape for better grip.

    Cuts extremely well. Only minor complaint is to the fact that it came with no case of blade shield/ cover of any kind.
