Product Details

Recognised as the finest carving files available, these flat carving files have the ability to cut extremely quickly with little effort, leaving a smooth, fine finish. Rather than having individual teeth, these files feature ridges chemically etched into the surface of the file. Regular grooves in these ridges break them up and make them act like little plane blades that shave the surface instead of scratching at it. This gives a much smoother finish even when a medium file is used. The ridges are bevelled away from the sides of the file making it safe to use in corners as there is no risk of damage to adjacent areas. These single sided files are 15mm wide by 4mm thick with the medium cut file featuring handles and the fine and extra fine having 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.

Daniel Meek

A great file. Bought a medium cut one of these some time ago, and lost/ mislaid it. For controlled carving, with a surprisingly good finish it was great.
It really is missed. I must replace it.

Really impressed with these files because they cut faster and cleaner than any other file I have ever used. These small ones are great for detailed shaping. Buy one, you will not be dissapointed.
