The unique spiral teeth of Iwasaki round carving files leave a smooth surface with no clogging. Round carving files are not just for grooves, they can also be used like the back of a half round for shaping work and progressive curves.
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.
As with all round rasps and files, a slight rotation as you push through the cut seems to yield the best results.
