Toothed on the external (convex) face, smooth on the inside and with safe edges, Iwasaki half round files are lovely precise tools for shaping internal curves. They can perform like a float when fine-tuning mortise and tenon joints and are ideal for flattening the body of a wooden plane.

The teeth of these files are chemically etched (denoted by CP in the product number) to produce accurate, consistent sharpness and even height. Designed specifically for wood, they cut fast with almost no pressure, don't clog, and leave an exceptionally fine surface.

Japanese carving files are designed to work with the grain. The tool will work efficiently under its own weight, reducing the pressure as you approach the finished shape will help to yield the smoothest possible surface.
