A set of files is an essential part of any knifemaker’s shop. From shaping to finishing to designing, a good file is needed for knife making. Shop full file sets or add to your collection with our wide selection of knife files. We stock needle files, chainsaw files, taper files, rat-tail files, half-round files, warding files, precision files, and more. We also have rasps for shaping wooden knife handles.
Wondering which kind of file you need? Bastard cut files have heavy-weight teeth for preliminary stock removal. Second cut files are ideal for moderate stock removal. Smooth cut files are best for finishing. Smaller files are used for design work on blades and bolsters.
