Pros 

  • Affordable
  • Perfect for gifting
  • Blades resist corrosion
  • Pre-sharpened blades
  • Not too heavy

Cons

  • Cannot fit inside a pocked

Durability

The chest is made from high-quality wood and will hold your tools for a lifetime. The tools inside are made by X-ACTO and are made from high-quality stainless steel, which will do a great job in resisting corrosion and will not just rust that easily. The fact that the blades resist rust makes you rest easy, knowing that you can wipe away that moisture from your tools at any time without worrying about how long it has on the blade.

Accessories

This set is an accessory because all the set’s tools complement each other. All you can do is get different-sized blades not already in the set if your work requires a different size. The only accessory I recommend for this set is an introductory manual to whittling and detailed carving for those beginners.

Blade

Since this is a set, it comes with several blades, the deburring blade, heavy chiseling blade, angled chiseling blade, curved carving blade, a whittling blade, No. 5 knife, and the No. 27 blade. These blades are made from high-quality stainless steel forged to produce the best results in their respective fields. The deburring blade will make sure to give you those smooth edges. The chiseling blades will ensure you are not found wanting in the chisel department. The curved carving blade will provide you with the best ridges with the help of the other contents of the set. The versatile whittling blade produces the best results, and it can even work on excellent plastic.

Who is this product ideal for?

I would recommend this set, as I said above, to anyone. This is not just one product. It’s a range of products put in one package suitable for everyone. This set is your best friend, from whittling to detailed carving and everything in between. For those craftsmen who take art as a profession and need the right tool to get the job done, you will find everything you need in this set. For those beginners, it is a great way to start as you try different tools and quickly and easily pick out the best tool for you. The box looks beautiful and clean, making it suitable even for decorations if you want to set that whittling mood in your space.

Our Verdict on the Xacto X5175 Deluxe Woodcarving Set

I give the Xacto X5175 4.7 stars out of 5. It offers the best there is. I would recommend it to anyone in the wood carving industry. I strongly suggest that serious carvers get this set for themselves. Have you seen the Xacto x5179 Wood Carving Toolset review?
