    This tool set is generally pretty good. As with most Xacto products, the blades are shape and the tools all there upon arrival. They do not all fit into the little holder thing which I felt was a little unsafe for the main carving knife blade to be free floating in the holder. At this time, Owning the product for about 72 hours now, I have since broken 2 blades, bent the saw tool blade and really wish I had gone for a different more stable tool kit all together. This kit is ideal for many, however if you are a beginning wood worker, stay away from this product. Go for tools that are solid in construction.

    The blades are decent, but really leave much to be desired. Switching blades out can become a hassle, even if the tool handle is comfortable, switching tool bits out when your in the moment of carving takes too much away from the experience. The blades break quite easily, bend very easily and are frustrating to use. Perhaps this item is more adept in its usage by more experienced wood crafter, but for a novice, I am honestly sorry I went with this over my other option of solid tools. In general I honestly can not say this tool kit is absolutely useless, I can see great potential for this kit, if it were used for scrap booking, or perhaps even small wood projects. If you buy this intending to do only wood carving, I recommend you buy something more stable and solid.

    Best wishes,

    Have only used a few of the scraping heads and the saw blade for my gourd projects. Word of advice, some of the attatchments have to fit in the groove and some need to be out of the groove when tightening them down so they stay in. You will understand when you get the kit. The items that I have used so far work VERY well for me, they scrape and cut and gouge very nicely. They are sharp and strong and I like the handle. The case is organized nicely but the downside is that the top blades sit against a magnetic strip that holds most of the blades some of the time and some of the blades most of the time but never all of the blades all of the time! I leave mine open so they don’t fall out when opened and closed. So there, fixed that problem! I would say that I am glad I bought this kit! Thanks, happy carving, cutting, gouging ,whittling, scraping and whistling while you work!

    Good Beginner set, July 14, 2009

    This set is good for a beginner, but wouldn’t be suited for an experienced whittler. The box is nice, but not all the blades and files fit in it exactly snug.
