If you own handsaws, these files are indispensable. A few minutes spent sharpening a saw can yield significantly faster, cleaner and more accurate cuts; the key is to use a good-quality file matched to your saw's tooth size.
Covering all but the finest-toothed Western-style saws, this selection of files is made by Grobet of Switzerland, a firm renowned for the quality of its workmanship and materials for 200 years.
Files are offered individually (lengths and tooth sizes listed in the price lines), as well as in a set of seven that contains all the files you need for saws ranging from 4 to 16 tpi, supplied in a thirteen-sleeve nylon roll with extra sleeves for expanding your set.
Also available separately, the storage roll keeps the files from rubbing together – a cardinal sin for files and rasps. The needle file (for teeth 16 tpi or finer) and the mill bastard file (used for jointing) are available separately.
