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.

    a STELLAR item!

    Absolutely superior to any file or rasp I have ever used. After tossing my Shurforms, Microplanes and cheap rasps in disgust, I was delighted to start my collection of these wonders. Fine is really medium, and Medium is really course - however even the Medium will give you a smooth finish except for little high ridges that sand off easily. This small file is so aggressive that I often prefer it to the larger version which requires two hands to use. The refined and polished chip-breaker edge design is so sharp and effective, it will please a master machinist. It's highly resistant to clogging. I only wish they offered a 2-sided fine/medium combination.

    Super effective design

    A light touch does seem to work best and of course filing down the grain instead of cross-grain leaves a smoother surface. Be sure to protect file surfaces by storing in some kind of cover...these are very fine edged sharp instruments and deserve care. I have both of the med. cut 150's - the dipped handle is a nice feature...and the flat 2-sided file is a stellar bargain. I also have the flat 200mm medium which has a much more agressive cut...watch the video...these things take stock down with amazing speed and ease. I strongly recommend these files to anyone interested in and working with hand tools.

    Excellent tool

    I also bought the half round medium cut file and both are great additions to the shop. Very sharp and give a good quality cut.
