It's a buffer so it slides smoothly against your skin and doesn't take little chunks out of it like the cheese graters do. it's a flat surface with small round areas that have diamond dust in them, but the file is flat. It feels like a nail file almost, but it looks MUCH more durable. It makes the skin very smooth and soft. Use with DRY feet.

Does not sheer your feet. This is safe and recommended for your feet. I am a professional nail technician and nail artist and I swear by this product. It is my new addition, I will NEVER use anything else again. This does not rip your feet up at all.
this is a buffer that has small, geometric shaped diamond bits that remove callused skin. painlessly.

I would categorize it as a foot file.

I like the results of a foot shaver, but am scared of getting cut. This smooths the foot like a dream. It's gentle as a nail file but works superbly. Looks flimsy and cheesy but it really is amazing.

No, this is not a cheese grater like shaver at all. It is completely flat and the buffing bits are slightly raised and textured, versus open. I actually don't even know how the textured part is so effective but it is. There is virtually no way to hurt or 'shave' the feet with this tool. It's the best thing I've come across for at home pedicure use!! You will not regret the purchase. I mindlessly use it while watching tv since it's so safe!

Neither, actually. This is a foot buffer. It is designed to take feet that are relatively smooth (i.e., in need of no serious rough skin removal) and buff them to silky perfection. You can use it basically anywhere on your foot because it is so gentle. Although the diamondy bits look pointy they aren't at all. When I run my fingertips over the surface it feels similar to the roughest side of a nail buffer (so, not very rough at all). If you are looking for something to remove really thick/rough skin in a gentle manner you should take a look at Diamancel #20. You can use the #20 on really rough areas such as the outside of heels and the big toe, corns, etc. and then after you are finished go over the entire foot using this, the #11, so the foot is perfectly silky.
