Having pointed out what I believe Flexcut can do to improve on their product I will say that after some buffing overall, burnishing on the scales, the knife looks better. Still not what I would consider to be a proper finish for a knife in this price range.
As a tool for carving and whittling it works as advertised and fits my hand well and is scary sharp. I only wish that the same care and quality that goes into blade finish was evident elsewhere on the finished product.
Update: After using the Whittlin Jack for a week or so I would upgrade my rating to a 4 star, the knife performs very well, holds an edge with very little stropping. I've carved a few Santa's and a few Hobo's so far and like this knife allot. I still think Flex cut could do a better job on overall appearance and finish. I would recommend this knife to anyone that wants a functional kine that can be carried in the pocket.
The blades are extremely sharp as needed.
The problem is that the blades are extremely tight, with too little of the blade back exposed to make opening easy, this combined with the extremely sharp blades could create a safety issue. As it is, the safest way to open this knife is with needle nose pliers (regular pliers may not grab the blade due to small exposed blade back). I am hoping with continued use the blades will become easier to open, as is, I will need to travel with pliers.
The longer blade is even lower into the handle than the shorter blade, and may require you to have the short blade open/out in order to get any kind of grip on the longer blade, (finger or pliers) which again leaves a safety issue of opening a very tight blade with another very sharp blade exposed right behind it.
This knife would get a 5 star rating if:
1) blades easier to open, then locking into place.
2) more of both blade backs exposed to grip the blade for easier opening.
It could use a lock. it is possible to pinch your finger with the blade while working and it will not be pretty. Even without that, it still deserves 5 stars. Respect your tools and you wont have a problem.
