When I reviewed other companies selling the same item, there were numerous complaints about the description and the actual rifflers being different. There was also complaints about quality. I have no complaints and I think that they will serve me for years.
They work well in the specialized work that I do. They are essential in shaping deer antlers.
Work as Advertised
Used to finish slots and notches of musical instruments. Would prefer that half of the files were a bit more aggressive for first passes.
At the price very good
These file rifflers are the last you use to produxce a fine edge and finish. They are small and very useful for edges which are difficult to finish. Fine detail work only , if you work large carving or joinery go with the Corradi.
Too, Cheaply Made !!!
Won't stand up or last long !!

Exactly what I expected
I use the riffler files to do detailed work when inletting components in the stock of flintlock rifles, especially around the lock and side plate.
Great quality product at a very low price. Great for getting to hard to get to areas on woodcarvings. Very satisfied.
Rasp to detail
God is in the details
I would buy this product again
Works great for fine detail work, without removing too much wood.
Riffler File Set Does the Job
It does what I thought it would do.

I would by again.
Does a good jop cleaning project after carving.

Teeth poorly cut
You get what you pay for. The teeth on these are poorly shaped, if at all. Some surfaces have almost no tooth or are inconsistently shaped, especially the side edges. Clearly the focus is on speed of manufacturing and low cost, rather than product quality. It's like someone in China was shown a decent riffler and asked how cheaply they could make a similar object. If you want something for casual work, these are fine. If you want to have precise and constistent control, like for shaping a carving, you're better to buy a few higher quality rifflers. That's what I'm going to do. Mind you, I'm keeping these just because the prices was so good.
Making woodcraft items, boxes, trays crosses, etc. Easy to use, do a good job. my first set of this kind of files. Would have liked a sturdier case.
