File, Precision Hand (L:6 in - Cut: 3)
Flat hand files are parallel in width and tapered in thickness. One edge is safe. Measurements given are at the thickest point of the file.
Glardon-Vallorbe Swiss Made Precision Files are measured from the point where the teeth begin to the end of the file. A 6" precision file will measure 8-1/2" long from tip to end of tang, but it is called a 6" file.
The coarser the file the more metal is removed. Files are graded as below:
- Cut 00 - Very coarse
- Cut 0 - Coarse
- Cut 1 - Coarse/Medium
- Cut 2 - Medium
- Cut 3 - Medium/Fine
- Cut 4 - Fine
- Cut 6 - Extra Fine
