Product Information:

Iwasaki files cut with surprising speed and yet leave a smooth surface due to the manner in which the teeth are milled and chemically etched. Combine that with the diagonal groove pattern, the result is a file that will cut like a plane, but with very little resistance and with the built in chip-breakers to help prevent clogging. All of the files are safe edged, allowing you to use them to adjust a mortise and tenon joints like a float or to fine tune the body of a wood plane without digging into the adjacent surfaces. Suitable for all types woods or plastics, their aggressive action provides short detail strokes without compromising speed. Whether you are working on a carving, or turning a pen with the choice of a medium, fine and extra fine tooth configuration Iwasaki Carving Files offer the right file for your task at hand.

    Comments about Iwasaki File 150mm Half-Round Medium Cut :

    Use this file to shape where you can't use spokeshaves, draw knives, etc. The cuts actually cut the wood more than abrading it. Smooth. Not much about this that is not great.

    Pros

    • Very sharp and effective

    Cons

    • None

    Best Uses

    Comments about Iwasaki File 150mm Half-Round Medium Cut :

    These files really need a category all their own. It's like having hundreds of tiny plane blades bonded to a file body. I have the fine and the medium. The fine will shave hair off my arm! I've never seen a "file" do that. They remove wood quickly and cleanly with no tearing, more like a plane than a file. They are especially good in areas where you are fighting the grain with a single blade tool.

    Good for tight spots where lots of material needs removal. Cuts rapidly and does not tear wood excessively.
