    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.

    Nice Knife

    I have used this knife to carve on some walking sticks, and also some basic carving of a face. Works really well, fit's in your hand nicely.

    flexcut pocket jack for carvin

    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!

    Excellent product, made in USA.

    This is perfect for carving small and medium projects. Very sharp and ready to use as it comes, no sharpening required.

    Sharp but....

    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.

    nice but

    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.

    Pocket Jack good for woodcarving

    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.

    Very handy and usefull. I am a carver.

    I am a professional wood worker. I custom make all kinds of wood utensils and furniture out of reclaimed wood. Many of the things that I make require "chip" carving. I do a lot of detail work and this tool is so handy. I have so many chisils, but I only use this and one other chip carving knife.
