Our online store is Safe and Secure (128-bit SSL).

Since we've been open 30+ years ago, we have charged our customers only what UPS or US Mail have charged to send your shipment. A few years ago, we started adding $1.00 to each shipment to cover the ever increasing costs of shipping supplies (tape, boxes, mailing envelopes, etc.)

If you do not have a special way you want us to ship your order, please let us choose the method - click on the “BEST WAY – Lowest cost possible”.  There still is no minimum order.  You can order a single pair of bird eyes or a ruby carver or whatever.  If an order is $150.00+, we generally ship UPS because it can be tracked should something happen to the package.

The skew, hook and straight blades are ideal for detail work or miniature carving.

Cash Rebates now available directly from Flexcut Tools for every $50.00 spent on their sets or individual tools.

Whittling Pencils
A re-print of Randy True's original publication is now available.  Click on the book below to order.

  The plastic pencils Randy talks about in his new book are not available and haven't been for many, many years. That is the reason we searched world-wide to find a decent substitute and found the ones made out of basswood. Before ordering a massive quantity, we sent samples to Randy for his approval and he said that they were carving very nicely.

He originally wrote and self-published the book when plastic pencils were available.  He was unable to change the wording in his book prior to publication.


You guys are awesome! 

I have always heard about the good folks in Bettendorf, IA when it came to wood carving supplies.  I have been carving for a number of years and finally decided to check out your website.  What I found was products at a good price, and a shipping policy that was different that most online stores I have dealt with.  I really like the ‘Best Way - Lowest Cost Possible’ option.  I placed my order on Friday, July 5th, and the order was in my mailbox on Monday, July 8th.  I simply couldn’t ask for quicker service for an online order!  Great products at a great price with great service!  Thanks a bunch!

Hi Guys,

I just received my Carving Tool Sharpener (514201 - Ross Oar Sharpening Jig) and I am a very happy shopper.  Thank you for your prompt service and I will be recommending your business to all carvers here in New Zealand.  Once again, thank you for your excellent service.

Big Dog,

Attached is an image showing the cover of the Holiday issue of Carving Magazine. This carving was created using many of the fine tools I've picked up over the years from your fine store. Thanks for being a great source to get the tools and supplies I use to follow my visions. Give everyone at the store a thanks for being a great place to get what a wood carver wants.

I am so happy I found the product for which I was searching at your site. Your service was fast and your way of handling shipping costs is refreshing. You have found a way to serve your customers that inspires future shopping with you. My husband went right to the site when I told him about your service! Congratulations!

Ruthie, Sun City, AZ


The bird patterns arrived today in the mail. Thanks for your service.  You folks are the best.  This isn't the first order I've gotten from you, nor will it be the last.  One of the reasons I like dealing with you folks is because the shipping is so reasonable whether I buy a few eyes or $100 worth of stuff.  I can buy what I want and not have to buy a bunch more just to justify a large shipping cost.  Thanks again!

Robin, Rochester, NY


Just thought I would let you know I received my order.  Thanks for the quality products, fair pricing, quick service and honest shipping costs.
