Gives a fast cut however a little better finish would be nice as I need to run a finer file for the smoother finish I need.
Be sure you have a file handle that is a proper fit to put on the pointy end.
The file was excellent quality, I used it to sharpen my Lawn Boy mower blade. I used it with "Nicholson5 in. Plastic Universal File Handle", and it took out deep nicks in the blade from rocks in the yard, and I got it down to a smooth edge at 45 degrees without much effort. I would recommend this file along with the handle to anyone with an application for a good quality file.
