A file is one of the most useful tools you can have in your toolbox or workshop. Sometimes in less time than it takes to get it out, plug in and spark up the grinder, you can clean up the edge of a tool or workpiece in just a few minutes. It is one of the best tools to give you a real feel for the material you are working on. If there is a subtle bump, dent or burr, you know that you will feel it and smooth it out with more confidence.

Metalworking, woodworking or plastic-working – Bahco’s range of quality files are best to reshape, smoothen or sharpen the task at hand. In addition, these files can be used to maintain your tools, meaning that you can keep your electric saw blades sharper for longer or give a surface a well-needed mirror finish. Bahco files have a narrow, pointed end called the “tang”, and are available with a Bahco ERGO™ handle, or non-handled, and all the files have a hardened steel surface and a series of sharp, parallel teeth.
