Flexcut's Mallet carving tools provide the control, and razor sharp edge required by expert carvers, and desired by those just starting out. Each set contains a practical mix of sharp and ready to use tools that will have you carving as soon as you take them out of the wooden box. Comfortable wooden handles, with octagonal facets give intuitive feedback on the orientation of the tool, and are easy to strike with the wooden or rubber mallet of you choice. Just as importantly, the high-carbon 1095 steel blade takes a wicked sharp edge, and is easily honed.
The thin blade of Flexcut Mallet carving tools impart a unique flex to their cutting action. Flexcut uses 1095 high-carbon spring-steel, hardened to between 55 and 58 HRC (depending on the tool), and sharpened to a mirror finished edge at the factory in Pennsylvania. Sharpness is always a balancing act between having a durable edge, and one that is easily resharpened. Flexcut's steel selection and heat treatment split that hair right down the middle; the mallet carvers can hold an edge, but are easily honed back to razor sharp with only a few swipes on a strop.
Flexcut Mallet Carvering Sets provide solid value and excellent performance for the seasoned carver looking for another a great tool in their arsenal, or the total beginner looking to start off with a set of high quality tools.
All sets come packaged in a wooden case, with removable lid.
