This set of Swiss wax-carving needle files features six commonly used file shapes and ensures you have access to the style you need when you need it. The sharp, long-lasting carvers cut wax cleanly on the forward stroke and shed wax particles on the return. The set includes one of each shape: warding, pillar, round, half-round, three-square and square.
Needle files feature a miniature profile with a shorter cutting surface (typically about half their length) and round, narrow handles. These small files are ideal for working on fine details and in small areas of the workpiece; they're ideal when access and surface finish take priority over metal 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.
