Flexcut JKN95 Tri-Jack Pro Review

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. Here’s our Flexcut JKN95 Tri-Jack Pro Review.

All three blades lock in place, and this adds 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 a pistol grip design made of aerospace-grade aluminum with a quarter cut cherry inlay. With this tool, making fine cuts is easy.

Aesthetics

Compared with the other Flexcut carving jacks, such as the Flexcut Whittlin’ Jack, 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 you can describe 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, which 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. Woodcarvers make the JKN95 Flexcut pro 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 will give you the fine edges that you need in the hand of a pro.

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 you should follow. 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. Like many Flexcut’s Carvin jacks, the great thing about this jack is that the blade locks in place when you are using it.

There is a bit of play, and so it is essential 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 simultaneously, 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, the 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, which 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. You must know how to use the blades and avoid getting cut. If you’re starting, you can still use this tool. 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 convenient 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 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! Have you seen our Flexcut JKN89 Pocket Jack for Carvin’ Review?
