Flexcut Tool Company, Inc. was founded in 1986, under the name of Falls Run Woodcarving, primarily as a custom carving shop and woodcarving school. In 1992, Flexcut began manufacturing a new breed of woodcarving tools to address the needs of the modern hobbyist and professional. Carving tool design had not changed much since the industrial revolution, although the people practicing woodcarving did.
The Mini-Detail Knife has a straight blade. It is made from ultra-thin material to not disturb adjacent wood for very delicate cuts. The smaller handle is faceted with multiple control points to allow it to be held in a variety of comfortable positions.
