Simonds 5-Piece 8” American Pattern File Set

Mill File

Mill files are single cut on the sides and edges, and taper towards the point in width. Excellent for a wide range of wood-shaping applications.

Square File

Created for slots, key ways, square holes or general surface filing. Square Files are double cut and taper toward the point in width and thickness, and feature the exclusive “wavy tooth” design.

Round File

Intended for enlarging and rounding out circular openings or concave surfaces. Round Files are double cut and taper toward the point in width and thickness. 


Gullet Special Files are single cut and parallel in width and thickness. Designed for shaping flat or round surfaces and cleaning up edges, you can also use the half-round on wide band saw blades to “dress out” and maintain smooth round gullets and eliminate crack-causing case hardening.

Multi-Kut Flat

Obtain almost any required finish simply by changing the feed pressure. Multi-Kut® Flat Files are single-cut coarse tooth files that taper toward the point in width. Simonds exclusive Multi-Kut® design features a diamond pattern “double chip-breaker” allowing for fast stock removal while leaving a smooth finish. So versatile, the Simonds Multi-Kut® combines the performances of Flat and Mill Files.
