Product Details

The perfect file for shaping table and chair legs as well as for other carving and shaping work, these single sided 200mm long half round files will leave a smooth finish on all kinds of hardwood and softwood. Featuring exceptionally sharp ridges rather than individual teeth, the surface of these files act like they are made up of lots of tiny plane blades that shave away the surface rather than scratch it. Across these ridges, a series of diagonally set grooves ensure than waste is cleared away efficiently and prevents the files from clogging even when working oily timbers and those that produce fine dust. The files each measure 15mm wide and are 4mm thick. These have tines allowing you to mount the file in a handle if required. Please Note: None of these files now have grips.

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.

These are the only files I have ever used where I haven''t needed to sand afterwards. The extreme fine cut file gives a finish so fine, it''s almost glossy. The only problem I have is that I''ve had to invest in some of the other sizes too. Wonderful!

Got the medium and fine cut carving files and the finish is absolutely unbelievable. So smooth even with the medium file. They cut very quickly so you need to be careful you don''t get carried away when filing.
