Produced by the same maker as our Japanese milled-tooth files, this float greatly simplifies flattening and smoothing the complex wedge mortises of bench and molding planes.
Used for the abutment and bed of molding planes, it also serves as a saw for opening bench plane mouths. It has slightly curved milled teeth on one edge only; the other three surfaces are safe.
About 8" long overall, the blade is 5/8" wide at the handle, just 1/8" at the tip, and has a 4" cut length. It has sharp chemically etched teeth for a smooth cut, and a textured cushion-grip handle.
Made in Japan.
