Product Details

The unique design of these half round files allows them to remove stock quickly and easily and leave a smooth, fine finish. Ideal for all kinds of woodwork including cabinet making and musical instrument making, these files are designed to plane excess wood away rather than simply scratch it. Each file has sharp ridges etched into its surface and a diagonal groove pattern running down it to assist with waste removal and to prevent clogging. The sides of the files are bevelled keeping sharp edges away from and to prevent damage to surrounding material. As well as wood, these files can be used on plastics, plaster and even aluminium. The medium grade file features a rubberised grip with the fine and extra fine having tines instead. Each file is single sided and measures 15mm wide by 4mm thick.

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.

Used the fine version of this file to shape the feet on a mahogany table. Worked perfectly leaving a good, clean finish that needed only a slight touch up with some de-nibbing paper. Only four stars as I didn''t realise how rapidly it was going to cut and I over cut on the first foot. Would definitely consider buying some more of these.
