Product Details

These small diameter round files can be used to smooth flat boards and chamfer square edges as well as for filing tight radii and internal diameters. Rather than have a series of teeth, these files have ultra sharp blades that spiral their way up the length of the file. This allows the file to plane the wood away rather than tear it, leaving you with a perfectly smooth finish that requires little or no further work. Also, this design of blade reduces the risk of clogging when working wet or very dusty woods. Avilable in three diameters, the 8mm and 6mm files are fine cut and the 3mm file, extreme fine cut. The 8mm file has a tine on the end, the 6mm and 3mm files have black, soft grip 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.
