These quality files are hard chromed for longer life and better glide. They are 1st cut files with 15 teeth/cm, and are well suited for removing edge material quickly, it is best to use them on side edges only, they are generally too aggressive for base edges, unless you are dealing with skis that are "edge high". With a Rockwell hardness of 67 they easily cut through edge material. Ski edges have a hardness of around 48, a file from your local hardware store will likely have a hardness of around 50. We offer them in 8 and 10-inch lengths. If you want to keep it simple just get an 8-inch and you'll be covered. If you're looking for a slightly less aggressive file, take a look at the Viiala Hard Chrome 2nd cut files.

Viiala Hard Chrome files
Purchased this files for hand sharpening vintage axes. So far they are working very well. I expect them to outlast conventional mill files by a factor of 2-3 times.
Great chrome file
Chrome files are always worth the extra. Great price and fast shipping.
Sharp and economical. Makes edge tuning easy.
Great file, very good quality
