This Friedrich Dick MZ wax-carving hand file is reversible—it has medium-cutting teeth on one side and coarse-cutting teeth on the reverse side, combining the benefits of two files in one; it's ideal for truing and smoothing wax blocks. The sharp, coarse teeth cut wax cleanly and resist clogging; one edge is smooth and safe, preventing unwanted material removal.
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.
