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.
Note: Grobet Swiss® is experiencing severe production delays on its saw files and does not expect to supply some sizes until early April, 2013. Until the stock is shipped from Switzerland, we are unable to take orders for these files. Our sincere apologies for this delay.
