How can you tell the difference between a file meant for wood and one meant for steels?

Wood files (rasps) have teeth which are maybe 10 or 20 times courser than steel files. Also, steel files have hardened teeth.

Yes indeed I have two or three large bastard files in my tool box. How come bastard means general purpose in files but not in people?
