I don't claim to be a carver.  I do most of my shaping on my handles with files and rasps.  One tool I never seem to see mentioned anywhere (not just here but other woodworking forums as well) is the file card.

This one is starting to show it's age.

I find it's an important part of my tool kit, at least as important as the files themselves.  A clean file or rasp cuts a lot better than one clogged with shavings.

Yes a valuable tool. I dont have one but use a wire or brass brush.
