As the title says, just sharing a recent find I made.

Purchased an Oberg cut file recently (for little money) and this has quickly become my go to file for shaping wood. I went with a Bahco 1-106-10-1-0 (250mm version) and have to say this is just lovely to use. It simply doesn't clog, ever! The Oberg cut itself is waved and produces a fine finish. You need to be firm with the grip as it will still track a little bit but no where near as bad as normal files.

I have since seen Workshop Heaven selling them on their site with handles and with a better description.

Anyone looking to add files to the toolkit, I can recommend these with full marks.
