If all tools were graded by their usefulness and longevity then Microplanes would be high on the list. Manufactured in the USA from high grade stainless steel, the unique Microplane manufacturing process creates hundreds of extremely sharp teeth for fast, smooth, effortless cutting. Durable, non-clogging and rustproof. Use to shape a wide variety of materials - wood, plastics, rubber, body filler, etc, etc. They can even be used to produce barley twists. Microplanes leave a good finish, requiring only a light sanding to further refine the surface.

OuchDo take care when using these exceptionally sharp tools. The top edges are just as sharp as the cutting surface so if (like me) you use it like a traditional file and guide the blade with your free hand then use good gloves - I didnt and got a nice deep cut.
