Your Flexcut Chisel Carving Tools are pre-sharpened at the factory to a highly polished razor's edge. This creates an efficient, long-lasting cutting tool. The more polished the edge, the sharper it is and the longer it will stay sharp. Keeping your tools sharp requires some routine maintenance.
Properly maintaining your carving tools is the key to achieving success in your projects. When considering the right tools for the job, a strop and sharpening compound are highly recommended.
With these in hand, you'll be able to achieve the perfect sharpness and angle required for your carving gouge. It's important to remember that the ideal angle for sharpening your gouge is 15°, which is the same angle it's typically pre-sharpened at.
Keeping your tools maintained and sharp will significantly enhance your carving experience. Don't forget to wear an apron and a dust mask to collect all the sawdust – with your newly sharpened tools, you're bound to create plenty of it!
