As part of our Mother’s Day series, we will introduce you to several superstar moms (and grandmothers!) who combine their love of family with their love of woodworking. Meet Lucette Jones - she found an old kitchen knife at 10 yrs old and hasn't stopped carving since.
My main knife for roughing out
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.
The Perfect Bench Knife
General purpose bench knife. Something I can grab quickly to take care of little problems.
Cuts extremely well. Only minor complaint is to the fact that it came with no case of blade shield/ cover of any kind.
Large Roughing Knife
As with all of the Flecut carving products this knife is exceptional in quality and workmanship. Great knife and works very well for removing larger cuts from your project.
