Razor Files

Super sharp and super efficient!
Imagine putting hundreds of little razor-sharp planes to work while you're shaping an instrument neck.

They're the sharpest fine-cut woodworking files we've ever used. They cut quickly and aggressively, but leave the wood surprisingly smooth. You'll discover they're real time-savers for shaping solidbodies, custom jigs and clamping cauls, too.

A new manufacturing process is the key to Razor File efficiency. Rows of semi-circular plane-like teeth are chemically etched to extreme sharpness, and diagonal grooves are milled at strategic intervals to minimize clogging. Available flat or curved, each steel Razor File has "safe" smooth sides (the flat file cuts on both faces). Early samples of these files were quickly snapped up by our R&D guys for testing in their own shops, and they immediately loved them.

Large files have a 7" x 3/4" (179.80mm x 19.05mm) cutting surface. Overall length including the tapered tang is 9-5/8" (244.48mm). The 3-5/8" (92.07mm) easy-grip contoured handle allows safe, comfortable use. Threads inside the handle grip the file tang securely.

Small files are for more detailed shaping work: tight contours, corners and smaller surfaces. Each file has a 3-7/8" x 3/8" (98.43mm x 9.52mm) cutting surface, 7-7/8" (200.02mm) overall length, and the handle is rubber-coated for comfort.

Final-shaping a neck with files and scrapers

Neck shaping a neck is all about feel. Chelsea Clark learned from Dan Erlewine, and by honing her skills on abandoned "project guitars" found on Craigslist and eBay. Chelsea gives a good intro to shaping a great-playing neck.

I bought the large flat and small curved and plan to buy their counterparts soon. They took a little getting used to, they cut a lot differently than a regular file. About 15 minutes on a scrap of maple and I had the hang of it. Quick cutting, and a nice smooth surface, great product, I know these are going to be the most useful tools in my file/rasp arsenal!

The first time I used these razor files I wasn't sure I'd like them. To me they had such a unique feel when cutting. Didn't take long to get the hang of them, though (like, a few minutes), and now they're on my everyday go-to tool rack, along with my Dragon rasp. I like 'em.
