Japanese 200mm Flat Carving Files

Rutlands    Part No. JP1134
With their longer length, these flat carving files are ideally suited to larger tasks that require greater stock removal and shaping. The long blade like teeth shave the wood instead of rasping it meaning that even the medium cut file produces a fine, smooth finish. Similar to long ridges, these teeth are chemically etched into the file making them exceptionally sharp.

A series of diagonal grooves run along the file and assist with waste removal ensuring that the file does not clog regardless of the material being worked. Used in all areas of woodwork as well as in carving, these single sided files can be used on all species of hardwoods and softwoods, plastics, plaster and even aluminium. These files measure 20mm in width and 4mm thick and feature tines.

These carving files are the best we have ever tried and from the outset proved themselves worthy of the excellent reputation they hold worldwide. Requiring very little pressure from the user, these files cut very quickly and leave a clean, smooth surface in their wake. Look closely at the surface of one of these files and the reason for this soon becomes apparent.

Each blade is made up of a series of chemically etched ridges rather than individual teeth. Grooves are cut at regular intervals along each ridge to form a diagonal pattern that runs the length of the blade. This combination of ridges and grooves makes the surface of the file act like it is made up of hundreds of tiny blades that plane the surface of the wood instead of scratch it away. The resultant finish is astounding.

    I had these files recommended to me by a friend who told me they were the best he''d ever used. Must admit he made a good call because these are exceptional. I use this size for rough shaping but also have some of the smaller ones for detailing work.
