I want to express my deepest gratitude to the team at LMII.  When I started making guitars 26 years ago, my first guitar was made from wood that I ordered from the LMI catalog (there was no internet back then). Since then, the team at LMI has been nothing short of excellent!  The products and services are second to none.  My only regret is that I waited 26 years to say...THANK YOU!

Razor Files

FILESRazorFilesGROUPB800Razor files are super-sharp due to their unique manufacturing process. The teeth are milled, then chemically etched and configured like a chip-breaker which also makes them much less prone to clogging. They cut smoothly like a file but can be aggressive like a rasp when you bear down on them. The teeth are arranged diagonally with gaps between them which means they take small narrow bites leaving a smoother surface than a typical rasp. They are hard and long-lasting. LMI has added a special touch by adding a handle to each file - buy one file or a complete set. These files will rust, so use normal precautions against rust. The files come wrapped in corrosion resistant paper.


"We got to use the new LMI razor files yesterday during the filming of the archtop course. They were great for shaping the F holes. They have an aggressive but smooth cut.  I like them a lot and love the handles as well."  Robbie O'Brien
