If you are looking for a roughing tool, then this may be your one-stop-shop. As the name suggests, the tri jack pro has three blades. This tool has three razor-sharp blades, and these are a roughing knife, a detailing knife, and a mini cutting knife.

All three blades lock in place and this adds on to the safety features of the knife. It is a compact tool with a variation of blades to help you with different tasks. It is a tool designed to help you get the most out of the experience of carving. Using a tool ill-matched for a task can make you despise it totally, but this does not need to be the case when you have the tri-jack pro. 

The blades let you make fine details and help you model surfaces. The blades are ready to be used right out of the packet. The tri-jack pro has pistol grip design which is made of aerospace-grade aluminum that has a quarter cut cherry inlay. With this tool, making fine cuts is easy.

Aesthetics

In comparison with the other flex cut carving jacks, this knife is not the best looking. But then again this all depends on what you think is a good looking knife. Some describe its looks as classy and sleek. Whilst others feel the wooden finish is more rugged than classy. 

The handle has a wooden finish, which can be described as sleek. This jack has a pistol style handle, which means that it has a good grip and you can see it when you look at the jack.

Your fingers can easily hold onto it. The handle has an ergonomic design which helps to reduce the amount of fatigue your hand may experience as you are working on the wood. 

When it is closed, it is 4 ¼”. However, the finish is not entirely smooth. The pins on the handle are not always filed down smoothly and this doesn’t look too good. This is unlike the other flex cut carving jacks.

Performance Review

The blades are razor-sharp and this works out great for the woodwork you may have at hand. The JKN95 flex cut pro is made by woodcarvers for woodcarvers. There’s no better tool maker than one who understands what the tool is meant to do. 

All the considerations and challenges faced by someone on the ground will be addressed or at least considered. The blade shafts are flexible and in the hand of a pro, will give you the fine edges that you need.

The flexibility also gives you maximum control over the blades which are made of high carbon steel. This will give you a hard cutting edge that you are guaranteed will always stay sharp. 

You know that the blade will stay sharp because of the mastery that has gone into making the blades. Each blade is handcrafted and tested before it lands on your doorstep. The blades are sharp but you still need to maintain them and you can do this by using the included strop.

Safety

When it comes to safety, it is always important to know how the blades open up so that you open them knowing which direction they go in and how they ought to be closed. Knowing which way is up or down will keep you from cutting yourself unnecessarily.

Even though this is a handy tool to have, there are still regulations that ought to be followed. The United Kingdom will not allow the sale of these tools to people under the age of 18. Most delivery companies and retail outlets may even ask for proof of age, so there is no cheating the system. 

This should give you a clue as to the level of precautions that need to be taken. It may seem like something anyone over 6 can use, but it does need a level of expertise and sobriety to use a flex cut JKN95 Tri jack pro. 

When you open and close it up, make sure to watch your fingers. The great thing about this jack, like a lot of flex cut’s Carvin jacks, is that the blade locks in place when you are using it.

There is a bit of play and so it is very important to be careful. Make sure to hear the clicking sound before you use it. This will mean that the blade is in place and will not buckle up as you use it. 

One of the issues cited by users is that the blades are dangerous to open, as they all come out at the same time, and then you need to put back the blades that you do not need to use.

If you do not know that this is how the blades pop out, chances are high that you may cut yourself on one of the razor-sharp blades. The handle also has pins that hold down the blades. Some of the pins are not smoothly filed down and this can sometimes be rough and hurt your hands. 

Who is this product ideal for?

This tool is great for wood carving hobbyists, and also for professionals. It is important that you know how to use the blades and avoid getting cut. If you’re just starting out, you can still use this tool, just always make sure to take the necessary precautions and have professional guidance.

Our Verdict

The JKN95 Tri Jack pro from flex cut, helps you do the wood carving you like to do, on the go. It is a very handy tool that helps you bring out the woodcarver in you. The black aluminum blades do a fantastic job of shaping and carving wood. We think this is a great multi-purpose tool to own. 

It is portable enough to fit nicely in your pocket or pouch, meaning that you can use it on the go. Follow the guidelines on how to use the blade and begin carving away. Failure to do so can result in injury. This is not a carving jack for beginners, so be careful. Happy shopping!
