Bahco Saw-Sharpening Files

Bahco/Lee Valley


If you own handsaws, these files are indispensable. A few minutes spent sharpening a saw can yield significantly faster, cleaner and more accurate cuts; the key is to use a good-quality file matched to your saw's tooth size. 

Files are offered individually (lengths and tooth sizes listed in the price lines), as well as in a set of six that contains all the files you need for saws ranging from 4 to 14 tpi, supplied in a thirteen-sleeve nylon roll with extra sleeves for expanding your set.

Also available separately, the storage roll keeps the files from rubbing together – a cardinal sin for files and rasps. The needle file (for teeth 15 tpi or finer) and the mill bastard file (used for jointing) are available separately.
