Product Details

With the advantage of not only being curved widthways but also lengthways, these carving files are perfectly shaped for working on concave surfaces, arcs and internal radii. Available in two lengths, these files cut very quickly leaving a smooth fine finish. The 100mm file has a red soft grip handle and the 150mm file has a tine. As with all of the other files in this range these single sided files feature rows of ultra sharp cutting edges similar to tiny plane blades and these plane the wood away rather than tear it. Ideal for musical instrument makers as well as furniture makers and many other types of craftsman and model maker.

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.

Excellent curved file, but a little too small for my needs. A larger version would be most useful. Can''t fault the performance of the file, it hollows and shapes beautifully.

Simply put, these are the best files I have found for hollowing and concave shaping. There''s nothing else to say.
