Workshop Files: good quality, good price

These files manufactured by Nicholson are remarkable for their "bang for the buck": good quality at a very good price. Nicholson is the most well-known American file manufacturer. These files were made at Nicholson's factory in Brazil. Unlike Nicholson's more expensive line of precision files, these come in a choice of only three tooth sizes. Files with ergonomic handle you find at the bottom of this page.

File cut 1: (traditionally called a "bastard" file) is a coarse-toothed file. File cut 2: (traditionally called a "second cut" file) means a medium-toothed file. File cut 3 (traditionally called a "smooth cut" file) means a fine-toothed file. The length is measured from end to shoulder, excluding the tang. All files are double-cut.
