Uo-Chikyu Precision Needle Files

Hiroshima Files' most popular line of Uo-Chikyu precision files are their Swiss-pattern needle file sets. These files have had applications in model building and jewellery manufacturing for many years. We've found that they also have a home in luthiers' studios. They're perfect for working on the fine details of shell, wood, plastic, and some metals.
