What is a half round file?

A half round file is a type of hand tool used for deburring, smoothing and shaping a range of materials such as metal and wood. The combination of a flat side and rounded side means that the half round file is ideal for use on concave, convex and flat surfaces making it a very versatile tool.

What is second cut?

Second cut (also called double cut), refers to the coarseness grade of the cut. A second cut file features two sets of lines that create a cross type pattern, forming the teeth of the file. A second cut features medium weight teeth and is ideal for removing a moderate amount of stock quickly. There is also bastard cut that features coarse teeth and single cut that features fine teeth.

What is the correct technique to use?

Like many of types of files, half-round files are designed to be used with a forward or push stroke, using steady, even and long strokes. Filing too quickly and aggressively can damage the material you're working with.
