If you are looking for a Mill Bastard, Round Bastard, Half Round Bastard File and a round rasp file or simply a Needle File, come to Tools Plus. Who named these files anyway? If anyone knows where the name "Bastard" came from, please email jeanne@tools-plus.com.

John D. kindly emailed me the following which he obtained from Wikipedia:

Files are defined by degree of cutting characteristic. Rough, coarse, bastard (intermediate), second cut, smooth, dead smooth. This suggests that the word bastard is assigned to a file that is neither rough or dead smooth, but about in between which is a cross mix of types.

Thanks John!
