Originally developed for working aluminum and auto-body panels, this 8" flat file cuts wood quickly but leaves a surface so smooth that only light sanding or scraping is required. It excels at general shaping, especially across the grain or on end grain.

The secret is in the curved milled teeth; though aggressive, they take a shearing cut that minimizes tear-out

It is also safe-edged, making it useful for dressing tenons without damaging the shoulder or as a substitute for a planemaker's float.

A screw-on hardwood handle is available separately.
