I purchased the sculpting tool. I wanted the longest wire span that was offered in these tools. It works great for creating rock wall type features that I use in my vavariums. Often if you look at natural rock walls. They are erroaded in very simular fashion side by side. If I contour the wire to the basic shape I want. Then run it accross the face of the foam materials making the cut. i just have to wiggle the cut wire slightly to give it a very natural looking features. Then applying foam coat with dark paint added in the mix. Give a great base for detailing the feature. Brushes and sponges can be used to add color to give in more depth.

I bought the full kit.

I have found the hot knife to be the absolute best tool. I have used a lot of smaller hobby cutters etc in the past and this tools tops them all. Versatile, able to get into tricky places, cut holes, add surface detail. It is a little flimsy but does most jobs extremely well.

The small bow cutter/carver is a useful tool as always for basic sculpting. Like most other you would use. It has small problems with the screw fixing being not always secure but on the whole a useful addition.

The Engrave is just that. Suitable for its purpose, but unless youare doing alot of engraving it is less used than the first 2.

The Freehand Router: Bendable cutting "blade" that can cut odd profiles. This tool has never done what I wanted from it. The blade is too thin/flimsy and the shape never hold completely. So any kind of precision work is not possible. If you are doing sculpture and more freeform stuff this tool might work for you. It did nothing for me. It is now relgated to the "Tools I don't use" Drawer...
