These Japanese bastard flat files perform superbly when working on flat or convex surfaces.
The blade is 25mm wide and fitted with a contoured wooden handle. The cutting length is 220mm with coarse teeth on both sides (3mm pitch) and 2 safe edges allowing you to use it in a corner. The total length is 390mm. These files are ideal for carvers, cabinetmakers, musical instrument makers and sculptors. They are capable of the accurate removal of timber on difficult or awkward grained wood. Rasps produce sawdust, files make filings (dust); an Iwasaki carver’s file produces miniature shavings. Like a rasp, an Iwasaki file removes material very quickly but the resulting surface is much smoother, requiring only a little sanding to finish.
Made in Japan.
