This Flexcut V-Tool is 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. We recommend a Flexcut strop and Flexcut gold sharpening compound. This Flexcut FR603 Palm 70° x 1/8" V-Tool is sharpened at 15°. That is the angle that you should also strop it at.
