These files are ideal for carving, shaping and joinery work. They quickly remove material but leave a smooth finish. These files have a mini-chipbreaker that break off wood shavings reducing clogs and making the file easier to work. The teeth are milled and chemically etched to provide efficient and fast cutting. Great for wood or more difficult surfaces such as bamboo, OSB, plastics and resins.
Cutting Capability comparison: 10 strokes with conventional rasp on the left, 1 stroke with the Iwasaki Half Round rasp!
