Introducing one of our newest microtool sets, Flexcut’s 4 mm Mixed Profile Micro Tool Set (MT940). These microtools are ideal for both woodcarvers and printmakers, allowing one to achieve the cleanest, finest details in his or her work.

Use this set to carve all of the extra-fine details your project requires. From adding eyes to miniatures to making smaller-sized line cuts in linoleum, these tools have become a “go-to” for smaller-sized projects. Artists have found they are excellent for cleaning up ridges created by gouge cuts, as well as accessing tight corners, and adding texture.

Flexcut SlipStrop + Knife Strop

Keep your tools razor sharp and in peak condition.

Are your tools sharp? Do you strop them regularly? If not, you could be inadvertently shortening their lifespan. Our SlipStrop and Knife Strop are exactly what you need to maintain a razor sharp edge and achieve the cleanest cuts.

Just say “no” to sharpening stones! These stones can damage your tools, leaving them unusable. Our specially designed SlipStrop is molded to allow for polishing and deburring the hard-to-reach areas on the inside of V-tools and gouges, as well as the outside edge bevel. Looking to sharpen your straight-edge blades? Flexcut’s Knife Strop has an 8″ x 2″ leather stropping surface, designed exclusively for stropping and keeping your knife blades super sharp. Both the SlipStrop and Knife Strop include a small bar of Flexcut Gold Polishing Compound.

Spoon Carvin’ on the Go

Flexcut spoon carving jack and spoon blank

Whether you’re out on the trail or next to a cozy campfire, Flexcut’s Spoon Carvin’ Jack makes it easy and convenient to handcraft spoons from every kind of wood stock – including our basswood spoon blank . The Spoon Carvin’ Jack includes both a shallow and deep hook knife, designed to form the hollows of spoons and bowls. It also features a straight blade for shaping and carving the fine details into the design.

Woodcarvers love that the Jack fits neatly into a pocket; its compact, all-in-one design allows for carving on-the-go easily, without having to pack and carry multiple types of tools. The handle is made of rugged aerospace aluminum with an ergonomic design that contours to comfortably fit the palm of the hand. We also included a deep crosshatching on the handle to keep the knife from slipping while carving.
