Powerstrop DeLuxe - designed to make honing of carving and other edge tools simplicity itself. Provided that you have a convenient source of power - such as a lathe, power drill or powered arbor - on which the honing wheels can be mounted, this tool will make honing a fine edge on your tools simplicity itself. Note though that the wheel MUST be arranged ONLY so that the wheel is moving away from the cutting edge of the tool being honed.
The PWS20 is the DeLuxe kit which contains two honing wheels. The first is a 3.5 inch (90mm) diameter real leather honing wheel with a flat peripheral surface, square to the sides of the disc. This is ideal for honing the outside of curved gouges, skew chisels and for tools such as whittling and carving knives. The inside of larger-radius gouges can also be honed on the "corners" of this wheel, with care. The second wheel incuded in the kit is a vee-shaped leather honing wheel (inverted vee to be precise) which is ideal for honing the inside of vee tools and other hard-to-reach areas.
The kit includes arbors for mounting the wheels, a bar of honing compound and installation and operating instructions. The genuine leather wheels can be easily re-shaped, if required, to suit special purposes.

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.
