The Slipstrop system, from Flexcut, is an economical way of maintaining a fine edge on carving tools. A razor sharp edge can be achieved and maintained using the specially-moulded honing block, with its multiple blade-matching profiles, combined with the unique Flexcut Gold honing compound. Both the inside and outside of carving gouges and similar tools can be honed on this system, which utilises that most economic and controllable power source - your hands. Eminently portable and flexible, this set should be in the carver's travelling toolkit even if "home comforts" include a power honing system.
Additional supplies of the unique Flexcut honing compound are available once the small bar supplied with the kit is used up, with the Flexcut Gold bar which is specially formulated to be appied to the SlipStrop like a crayon. Quick, clean and easy.
Made in the USA, the Flexcut range of woodcarving tools are amongst the best money can buy. Their innovative design and style have become much loved amongst the carving community, and with good reason.

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.
