Flexcut KN34

Aesthetics

The KN34 skewed detail knife has a pointed blade. It has a 1-3/4inch blade bevel. The blade is made of high carbon steel and is pre-sharpened and hardened. It is a shiny blade with a very clean look. 

Meanwhile, the handle is made of ashwood which has a light brown hue. It is straight and this allows you to hold the knife as if it is a pen. This position helps you get more detail carving done, and gives you more control.

Performance Review

The blade on the KN34 skewed knife is a highly effective knife when it comes to making detailed cuts and carvings. The pointed ultrathin blade, allows you to get into tough spaces and carve details you ordinarily would not be able to get using another knife. It is a sharp knife and this makes your work much easier.

It can easily carve into just about any wood. Flexcut makes it a point to always pre sharpen the blades and this works in your favor. It will take some time before you need to sharpen the blade. 

The handle is straight and resembles the handles on most general knives. It is specifically designed for a comfortable fit and prolonged use. You can comfortably carve for longer, and get the detail that you need.

Safety

The KN34 is a relatively easy knife to use. The knife is portable and versatile and using it will need a certain level of caution, as with all blades. The blade is razor-sharp, right out of the package, ready to use. 

The sharp blade is a double-edged sword in that it makes carving easy but at the same time poses a risk of cutting yourself. On the other hand, it is important that you keep you the blade sharp. Blunt blades, can be a huge risk and cause injury.
