Sizes, shapes, and flexibility
Oakblade is a tube handled painters palette knife platform that allows for a broad range of options! Invented in 2016 by Engraving artist Ray Oak Hyder and carefully refined with hundreds of painters lending input for blade shapes and flexibility resulting in the current lineup.

Rain Drop series (RD),

Most of the shapes are available in up to five levels of flexibility!
Low flex - A firm, stiff as possible blade for heavy paints and wax paint mixes.
Lower flex - In between Low flex and Regular flex
Regular flex - Firmer but flexible, the most popular level. Good for accurate line placement and general moving of paint.
Extra flex - For those who want a truly flexible palette knife, but one still has enough spring back and power to work thick paints and mediums.
Supreme flex - The most flexible palette knife possible in stainless steel! Carefully hand rolled blade is tapered in thickness. Often reported to be far more flexible than expected.
Titanium Ultra flex - Only available in CP2 titanium models Ultra flex is probably the most flexible palette knife the world has ever seen!
Each Oakblade is cold forged from a single piece of metal in a small workshop located at Vancouver B.C. Canada by Ray Oak Hyder - Inventor and Engraving artist
