What is meant by double cut?

Double cut refers to the teeth of the cut. A second cut file features two sets of teeth that create a cross type pattern, forming double cut teeth. A double cut file features medium weight teeth and is ideal for removing a moderate amount of stock quickly.

What is bastard cut?

Bastard cut refers to the coarseness of the file, other types include second cut and smooth cut. Files with a bastard cut feature teeth that are coarse allowing for rapid removal of stock material whilst still producing a relatively smooth finish.

What is the correct technique to use?

Like many of types of files, half-round files are designed to be used with a forward or push stroke, using steady, even and long strokes. Filing too quickly and aggressively can damage the material you're working with.

How to maintain your file

In order to ensure your files remain sharp and work to their full potential, it is essential to regularly clean and maintain them. A file card or wire brush are recommended as they can remove debris and build up between the teeth of a file efficiently, without damaging them.

What is the overall length of the file?

The overall length of this file is 200 mm.
