This carving jack is heavy and well put together. Any handcrafter who is used to working with wood will appreciate how convenient it is and easy on the eyes.

Before you break out the blades, it doesn’t look like it can pack as much punch. Most utility knives are bulky because of the different blades that fold into them. But this jack is other. It is pretty slim and easily fits in your hand. 

 The handle is red and has crosshatching on it, and it is eye-catching and sleek.  This helps you keep a firm grip on the knife. When you are carving, this is one of the essential features you need.

If it is slippery, it can hurt you as you work. And so, it is necessary to make sure you have traction on the handle. When you buy this knife, make sure you know the hand orientation you need. This model comes in both left and right-hand directions.

Performance Review

It is always beneficial to hear what people who have bought and used the product say. This product has a five-star glowing review, and people are happy with what they get.

All three blades and edges are made of stainless steel. This makes the knife more durable. And has a higher cryogenic resistance.

It also has high corrosion resistance. The three blades do well as a shallow hok and a deep hook. On the other hand, the straight blade is excellent for the finer details you may want to be carved into the spoon. The blades are pre honed, and this makes them ready to carve.


When using any blade of any sort, it is important to consider how safe it is to use and how safe it is if, say, a child was to find it. Of course, you will do everything to make sure that you keep it away from little hands that may want to see what it’s all about, but sometimes it is unavoidable.

The great thing about the JKN96 Spoon carving jack has blades that fold back into the handle, keeping them out of the reach of children. 

Another safety feature that allows you to use this tool at ease is the locking of the blades feature. Each blade has its lock, which keeps it in place as you work. This lets you keep on crafting and working on the wood without worrying about the blades folding back in at will and possibly cutting your finger.

The blades are well-sharpened and made of good quality material, so you always want to be careful when handling blades, especially as you open them up and fold them back in. Ensure that you use the appropriate protective gloves when working with this or any other blade. 

The handle itself has a crosshatched surface, which will keep your hands from slipping when you use the knife. As a safety precaution, some online retailers ensure that it is not sold to people under 18.

This is a necessary precaution that must be standard across all outlets, including the manufacturer’s website. It easily fits in a pocket and can be dangerous if it lands in inexperienced hands.

Who is this product ideal for?

It is ideal for the avid handcrafter who has a keen eye for detail. You must be honest about your skill level and handle. Flex cut has made this tool for carving wood, and it is one of its kind. It is a multi-purpose tool that is suited for handcrafters.

The great thing about the flex cut makes its tools is that you can rely on them, and they are ready to use right out of the package. Because of its razor-sharp edges, it is best used by intermediate to skilled handcrafters. Please take the necessary safety precautions when using it, as with all blades.
