The Iwasaki IW-250HRB (250mm, halfround, bastard cut) is a coarse toothed file ideal for internal curves on larger work.
Ideal for general stock removal tasks like cleaning back to the line after roughing out on the bandsaw, roughing out shaped pieces and adding large ornamental features.
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.
The halfround Iwasaki files are forged into shape and toothed on the outer curved surface only.
