Product Details

Longer than the other files in the range and with a much faster cutting capability, these 250mm bastard cut files are the coarsest files in the range. Available in flat or half round, these files excel where large amounts of wood need removing. Using the same technology as the other files in the selection, instead of having individual teeth across their cutting surface, these single sided files have rows of ultra sharp, chemically etched ridges. These act like tiny blades that plane away the surface of the wood rather than tear at it like a conventional file would. The edges fo the file are tapered away to make it safe to use up against a finished surface with little risk of damage. Both files feature tines rather than handles.

Made in Japan. 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.

Unknown

The cutting ability of this file is astonishing. It seems to bite into any wood as if it was lime or something similarly soft. Would have liked a proper handle on it rather than a simple tine, but that is easily solved by purchasing a file handle.

Went missing in the post, very disappointing. Had to wait two weeks to make sure it hadn't just been delayed at the sorting office but then still no sign. Rutlands quickly sent out a new file which duly arrived the next day. A great range of files now on the website. Will definitely be ordering more.
