Flexcut KN27 Mini-Detail Knife

Aesthetics

The knife has a hook-shaped handle, made of ashwood, which is light-colored by nature. It also has a straight grain and this adds to its aesthetic appeal. You also will not miss the flex cut logo that is in red and spans across the handle. The light color of the wood also means that you can see the straight grain and it looks clean. 

The KN27 mini detail knife will easily fit in with the rest of your tools. The blade is straight and is purposefully made this way so that it has various facets for you to comfortably hold the knife as you work.

Performance Review

The straight blade on the 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 the other adjacent wood. 

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

Safety

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 you are handling it. The sharp blade is a double-edged sword when it comes to safety. A sharp blade can cut you but also carving with a blunt blade is dangerous, so you always need to make sure that the knife is sharp enough. 

Also, make use of whittling gloves when you are working. This will help you keep your fingers safe.
