Mill files are used by woodworkers primarily for jointing scrapers and saws. These Grobet files are from the maker’s Swiss-made line and are the best files made today. The 8" file is pretty standard for jointing scrapers and can also be used for jointing saws.The file is just under 1/8" thick (3mm). We decided to stock the 4" mill file as well for fitting into a saw jointer and for smaller stuff. We are not sure if the 4" is a distinct improvement, but it seemed like a good idea. It’s a really cute file, with about half the thickness of the 8" size, so it has a little flex. Both are "smooth cut," which will give you a nice finish. Note: all 4 sides of the files have teeth cut. Made in Switzerland.

Excellent for Sharpening!

By: Stephen (Sep, 2013)

I was having a hard time getting a good edge on my card scraper until I decided to get this 8 inch Mill File and what a difference! I highly recommend this file to anyone looking for excellent quality at an affordable price! It cut my sharpening time in more than half. I even wrote a blog post about it to spread the word. http://woodandhand.com/2013/07/sharpening-a-card-scraper/
I own this product.
