File 150mm Half-Round Medium Cut
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...

From the first time woodworkers tried sandpaper-on-glass sharpening, they’ve wrestled with the fact that most abrasives can’t stand up long against steel. The Work Sharp’s plate and guide design accelerates the effect. The consistent touch point quickly wears away a ring of abrasive, especially when using the coarsest grits. Worn paper encourages the user to press harder, which doesn’t make sharpening any faster and overtaxes the machine.

Works really well, Takes a little getting used to how it cuts. A good compliment to a decent rasp. Wish I had found these sooner
Learning Curve is shaped with an Iwasaki
These work great. Its like having a dozens of tiny little card scrapers all working together. Really good for end grain shaping
Very good tool.
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.
A great tool
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.
Needed a couple of files for small(ish) work. These are really sharp, precise, don't clog up and are comfortable in the hand. Very pleased.
Good for tight spots where lots of material needs removal. Cuts rapidly and does not tear wood excessively.
