Aesthetics

The KN25-3 inch draw knife is perfect for small projects. It differs from several draw knives in that the handles and the blade are on the same line. The ashwood handles are on opposite ends, whilst the blade sits firmly between them. 

The blade is made of high carbon steel which is hardened and sharpened. The handle is made of ashwood has a light brown hue. Both handles have a wave-like shape which makes it more comfortable to hold and helps you avoid hand fatigue as you work.

Performance Review

The KN25 3 inch draw knife is specially designed for fan carving. This knife’s design also helps a great deal in smoothing rough corners and removing bark.

The blade is very sharp, and Flexcut describes it as being razor-sharp. The handles are designed to be comfortable and give you more control as you work. This is an important feature if you are to get a precise carving. 

Safety

The great thing about Flexcut is that they make sure that all their knives come already sharpened and ready to use. This is the same scenario with the KN25 3inch draw knife. It is very sharp, so that working on the wood and carving the shape that you need, is very easy.
