You know Ellen, as odd as it seems to me, the larger V-cut tool in my
Pfiel set cuts an even finer line than the smaller V tool in the same set.
Does anyone find that this is true of their tools as well?

I'd like to throw in my endorsement for the flex-cut tools. I took a set to
the first Baren Forum & thought I was the odd one out. Being a fresh-faced
& very inexperienced novice, I didn't toot any horns, but my tools went
through the oak table print project without needing to be re-sharpened---and
are still keeping their edges. I too love the way they fit my palm---They
do have a rather odd double-beveled 'tu' in my set; not a traditional
cutting edge, but one that switches hands and directions very nicely...

Printing my exchange #28 next week---My neighbor Carole Baker has offered to
oversee my first Hanga attempt---I have four blocks, and I'm nervous!
