Pferd is a German company that might be better known for abrasives and carbide burrs, but they’ve been making files for over 200 years in Germany and it’s actually their original product.

Compared to other files on the market, these stay sharper longer, and have comfier handles. Most file sets go with 8” length as standard but we feel 10” is a better length for most metalworkers because it gives you a longer stroke and a little more space to grab onto the end when using both hands.

American Pattern Machinist Files typically come in three styles of cuts, Bastard Cut (roughest), Second Cut (less rough), and Smooth Cut.

On a 10 inch hand file/flat file typical teeth/inch are as follows: Bastard Cut= 23, Second Cut= 30, Smooth Cut= 40.

File Set 541 WRU: 10” bastard cut (EDP 16080)

File Set 542 WRU: 10” second cut (EDP16081)

This set comes in a rugged, weather-resistant PVC roll-up pouch for optimum protection
