Woodcarvers Needle File Set Fine 12pc
Files, rasps and rifflers allow you to shape and smooth wood with much greater control than normal edge cutting tools. Rasps have individually raised teeth, while files have straight chiseled edges. Files also cut more slowly than rasps but give a finer finish. Rifflers are double ended, and either file or rasp cut.
Although graded for coarseness of cut, files and rasps of a specific grade will vary depending on their size and even on the manufacturer. The size and number of teeth on a rasp can vary from a very coarse cut (for rough shaping of wood) to extremely fine (for working curved surfaces in sculpting, carving and furniture detailing).
