Performance Review

The straight blade on the Flexcut KN27 mini detail knife is made ultrathin to fit in tight space. Mini detail carving requires that you fit a blade into very tight spaces and avoid disturbing any of the other adjacent wood. 

This blade is also very durable, thanks to the high carbon steel that it is made of. Since detail carving may need you to chip out small pieces of wood, the blade needs to be durable. And this blade is very durable. 

Ashwood is also known for its durability so that you can carve away with ease. The handle also has multiple facet points. This is so that you can have many points to hold the knife comfortably.


Using flex cut knives requires that you exercise extreme caution. The knives come sharp, so you have to make sure that you are careful when handling them. The sharp blade is a double-edged sword when it comes to safety. A sharp blade can cut you, but carving with a blunt blade is dangerous, so you always need to make sure that the knife is sharp enough.
