Barrette Files

Barrette files are flat on one side and beveled on the other. The flat front is double cut and the beveled back side is safe, or uncut. These files taper toward the point in width and thickness. The coarseness of the file indicates the spacing of the teeth and the number of teeth per inch; the our different grades for American Pattern Files are coarse cut, bastard cut, second cut, and smooth cut. (In that order from fewest to most teeth per inch) The coarseness of the file also depends on the length from point to heel. Shop our online selection or contact us today for a custom quote.
