Great American File
£12.00 – £18.00
Because this ‘teardrop’ cross-section of file has a narrow-triangle profile you won’t nick the root of adjacent teeth. The rounded back is toothed making it great for cleaning and deepening gullets. These files are variously called ‘crosscut’ and also ‘great american’. They are single-cut i.e. the teeth are punched in one direction only so they are easier to clean and leave a smoother finish than double-cut files. Dolly Chapman recommends these and brought us some when I organised her UK tour in 2017. So impressed am I that I have now secured the UK & EU agency for these files. Watch the video to match your gullet-width to the file size.
