This detail file, otherwise know as a double-end vulcanite file, is made by Grobet in Vallorbe, Switzerland. Vallorbe is an industrial region that is famous for iron foundries and tool producers since the 16th century. This particular file has coarse teeth, almost like a float, for filing plastics, waxes and other soft materials. It is 8" long and is made of chrome alloy steel for hardness and durability. One side is half round and the other is flat, with coarse teeth on one end and finer teeth at the other. The symmetrical double-ended design allows you to go from coarse cut to fine cut without having to pick up another tool. The flat sides of the file are pretty useful for tuning and correcting joints, and the curved sides work great for shaping smoothing surfaces on carvings and other sculpted wood such as a cabriole legs. Made in Switzerland.

I have been using my Grobet Detail File constantly for the last two years, and it's still so sharp as the day I purchased it. Thanks Stephen.
