We stock a variety of "Bastard" cut, varied profile engineer's files. Great tools for intermediate stages of shaping and finishing horn handles. Very durable, easily cleaned out with a wire brush or hot air gun. "Stickmaker's essentials"
Similar to Dreadnought files but have an offset and cross notchedtooth pattern making them ideal for rapid removal of material whilst leaving an excellent smooth worked surface
Sometimes called "milled tooth" files. Made in specially hardened alloy steel and produced with a definite undercut to ensure that they remain "clog" free in use, these are, without doubt "the" files to work horn with.
