Flexcut chisels are cut from spring steel to produce tools which have a unique flexibility. Many carvers find this flexibility allows them to deflect the tool in the cut to better follow the desired cutting surface. This blade is one of the series designed to be mounted in the interchangeable handles (types SK100; SK102 or SK103). The blades are supplied ready sharpened and honed, ready to use.
The vital statistics of the tool are as follows (all dimensions are approximate and provided for general guidance only):-

Flexcut Tool Company, Inc. was founded in 1986, under the name of Falls Run Woodcarving, primarily as a custom carving shop and woodcarving school. In 1992, Flexcut began manufacturing a new breed of woodcarving tools to address the needs of the modern hobbyist and professional.
Carving tool design had not changed much since the industrial revolution, although the people practicing woodcarving did.
Over the last few years, we have introduced "The Carvin' Jack Collection" - folding jackknives designed for woodcarving, new specialty knives, sharpening products and a line of Micro Tools.
With more new products being planned for design and manufacture, our customers have come to expect the most innovative products made by the most skilled craftsmen.
