Getting into carving can be daunting because of the huge range of sweeps and sizes available. Flexcut Palm Tool Sets make it easy to purchase a practical selection of tools for your first project, without carving a hole in your billfold.
Flexcut was founded by woodcarvers, and their Palm Tools are some of the most popular on the market today because they deliver outstanding performance and value in an American Made tool. Their low bevel angle and comfortable handle make them easy to push through the wood, while the high quality 1095 steel blades and expert heat treatment make for a durable, and maintainable edge that gets very sharp.
After spending time testing the Flexcut line, we've been impressed with the quality of these tools. The thin blades cut smoothly and flex slightly in use, giving them their unique Flexcut feel. More importantly, they're delivered sharp, they stay sharp, and sharpen quickly on a strop with some honing compound. Flexcut Palm tool sets are a not only a good way to get into carving, they're a good addition to any carver's kit.
