This is one of three sets I have bought and I was pleasantly surprised at the quality given the low price. I use these on soft stone for detail work and after many hours of use they have kept a good edge. I would buy them again.

This is the only riffler I've used, so my review is worth about as much as you paid for it:LOL:

That said, I needed tools that could remove small amounts of material in tight spots and/or tricky curves/angles. These work marvelously. They don't appear to be very refined as the steel has a "raw" quality to it. Given the unfinished steel and the thick coat of grease they came packed in, I suspect they will rust quickly unless well cared for. I've been careful to run the rifflers across a bar of parrafin wax (Gulf wax) after each use. Seems to be working.
Although these are described as "medium" rifflers, they are pretty coarse and can remove a lot of material really quickly. The "coarse" set must be REALLY coarse. I'll likely supplement these with the "fine" set.

This riffler set gives you a TON of tool for a small price.

This set is pretty much what I expected. They look to be hand made so there is some variation from file to file but good enough for what I wanted them for. I ordered both a medium and a fine set I would not suggest doing this as the difference between the medium and fine is very small. I had a hard time telling the difference. All in all worth the price.

These rifflers have a fatal design flaw where the teeth are all parallel to each other. This doesn't seem like a big deal at first, but after a few strokes on stone out is easy to see why they are cheap. Save yourself the hassle and buy a $15 Italian riffler that can actually get the job done right.

I needed a small set of wood riffler files and this, Steelex D2862 Medium Riffler Rasp Set, 8 piece set met my needs. They are a rough bite riffler file set, more suited to softer woods and each file end is about 2 inches of file on each end of the handles of rod steel. I feel these are adequate for most wood needs, just not very fine work as they are sized for roughing in the work for a finer file to finish up on. These files are worth the price paid and and I lik them.

I needed to be able to level off some wooden pegs that I drive through leather to hold it together. This is a difficult area to get into so I needed a slim tool with a small head. These work great. They are aggressive in removing leather and seem closer to course than they do to fine, so the medium is not half way between.

I am very happy to have a set with different head shapes to get into different areas and they work quite well for my needs. The abrasiveness varies from piece to piece so I am not sure the quality is super high, but for the price paid I would recommend these to others with similar needs.

This product is just as advertised. The riffler set is great for smoothing and/or carving wood and soft stone.

The supplier Grizzly, however, was a bear to deal with! My initial order was delivered to the wrong address and I needed the tools immediately. I contacted Grizzly and asked them to overnight a new set to me at the expense of the shipping company (after all, they mis-delivered the original package.) Grizzly's response was that it could take up to 10 days for delivery, though I had already informed them that the product was delivered to the wrong address, and to call them again if I didn't receive the merchandise by a certain date. That date came and went so I called Grizzly again and they said they would ship a new set to me. Well, they shipped it the same way they shipped my original set and the set arrived a day later than when I needed them. While I will still make use of the tools, I wasn't able to do the work I needed to do when I nedded to do it. Thanks for the consideration Grizzly. Needless to say, with this kind of customer service, I won't be looking to do any more business with Grizzly. G R O W L !!!

These are quite cheap. They bent under the pressure of my hands. However, I didn't need something high quality. I am just carving foam for a school project. Anything harder than foam will be a waste to purchase this item.

On that note, they are quite rough and wouldn't be used to smooth anything out. Good for getting in tight spaces as well.
