This compact set from Flexcut contains everything you'll need to get started in the absorbing craft of wood carving. The set includes an ABS palm handle, three SK series interchangeable blades and a guide to woodcarving techniques as well as an instructional DVD. To get you started, the kit includes an attractive project: a replica cowboy boot for you to carve. The wood blank for the project is included in the kit along with a project guide.
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. The tools are supplied sharpened and honed ready for use. The blades are all-over black finish, apart from the ground and honed bevels. The handle supplied as part of the set is Flexcut's SK102 2in. (50mm) long ash palm handle and any of the supplied blades may be fitted into this handle, as can any others from the extensive Flexcut SK range.
The content of the Flexcut SK108 3-piece Beginner Craft Carver Set is:-
SK307 - 1/4in. (6mm) x 70 degree Vee tool (parting tool)
SK407 - 9/16in. (15mm) x #2 sweep straight chisel with double bevels

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.
