This Friedrich Dick all-purpose mini wax-carving hand file is ideal for rough-shaping wax models and for truing and smoothing wax blocks for carving. One flat side of the file has a coarse cut, the opposite has a medium cut; one edge features a cutting surface, and the other edge is safe and smooth. The file cuts wax cleanly and resists clogging, and includes a durable plastic handle for a safe grip.
Wax files feature broad patterns of coarse teeth that quickly and efficiently cut and shape hard wax and other relatively soft materials for model-making. The teeth resist clogging, allow you to form the basic shape for your design models, and then refine their details prior to creating molds.
Among the finest jewelers' files in the world, Friedrich Dick files are made of tough chrome/tool steel alloy and precisely machined to yield sharp corners and fine points. These files have deep-cut teeth that provide efficient, uniform stock removal and are 66–67 HRC hardness for exceptional service with minimal care.
