I have a large number of handled and unhandled FlexCut carving tools, and I'm really happy with all of them. I wanted to get this tool to be more "portable" and be able to carve when the mood hit me, without having to drag out my larger case of tools. This tool, while it has an interesting assortment of profiles and could be useful, fails to fill the need because the mechanism for keeping the tools together is fraught with problems. The embossed nail nicks in the blades are tiny, and situated very close to the hinge, and require an incredible amount of force to move. My nails have broken before they actually moved the blade, and this forces me to resort to dangerous moves to get the blade I want. In use, the hinges drag the other blades along with so it's impossible to pull out just one blade without having to push the others back. These blades are in shapes that make it hard to push one without nicking oneself on the others. Since this is a FlexCut tool of legendary sharpness the nicks are deep, but at least a clean cut heals quickly.
By FlexCut's own admission it's easy to have the tools push further into the handle, thus defeating the locking mechanism. Their advice in the owner's manual is to somehow "not push the blades [...] any deeper into the handle", but they don't tell how to do this: any sort of rotation of the blade in use pushes in the others on that same hinge.Read more ›
I've considered buying another one in case I drop the first one over-board - GRIN.
CONS: I have actually designed this item, years ago, but with swapping out blades. That is, you buy the blades you want and lock them into a folding piece. The problem I have is some of the blades I use as left hand not right hand, so I had to buy two. Now, of course I decided the expense justified the portablility, and still feel so, but HOW NICE it would have been to just swap out blades the way I wanted, that is customize the package.
Price seems a bit high anyway, but correct for the portability aspect. NOT recommended for everyday, at the 'shop' carving, meant to be just a portable item, which, means ya' don't have to cart about or loose a piece.....ergonomically it is ok, including getting the blades in/out...didn't have the problems as the next reviewer did.

great for the person who loves to carve. Exceptionally sharp for precision cuts. just the right mix of blade styles for almost any situation.Published 3 months ago by Critter
It's a good knife though it's hard to open many of the tools and is plastic-y. Great idea poor execution, I could forgive it if it was 20-30 bucks cheaper.Published 5 months ago by Amazon Customer
Yes I Liked it. Very sharp. Some blades are a bit difficult to openPublished 8 months ago by Amazon Customer
Good for a portable carving tool. Does not replace a good set of carving tools. But again, great to take to the park or on the go. It does hold a good edge!Published 15 months ago by Sitesby
Looks like it will be a good detailing tool. Very difficult to open a blade and impossible to open a single blade.Published 18 months ago by Kyle P.
