Tool Maintenance

Having a sharp edge on your carving tool is essential to achieving top-notch results in your carving projects. Not only does it make carving more efficient and easier, but it also prolongs the lifespan of your tools without the need for constant resharpening.

Keep in mind that the ideal angle for sharpening your gouge is 15°, which is typically the same angle it's pre-sharpened at. With these tips in mind, you'll be able to keep your carving tools in top condition and enjoy a smoother, more efficient carving experience.

To keep this knife in razor sharp condition, strop on a regular basis.  We recommend polishing compound and a strop. 

As you're deep in the world of carving, it's easy to get lost in the beauty of the wood and the creation happening before your eyes. However, it's important not to forget about the crucial carving accessories, informational books and safety supplies that are just as important as the wood and tools themselves.

 An apron is essential to catch all of the chips of wood flying around, while a tool roll will keep your tools clean and in good condition. But perhaps the most important accessory is carving gloves, finger and thumb guards, which will help keep your hands safe while you're working with sharp tools.

So next time you're ready to dive into a carving project, remember to take all of these essential items into account and prioritize safety above all else.

So why wait? If you're a woodcarver looking to take your craft to the next level, give the Flexcut Interchangeable gouge a try and see the difference it can make in your work.
