Simonds 8" Flat Maxi-Sharp All Purpose File -- Paddle Handle
A classic "Farmer's Own" style of all-purpose file, featuring a double cut coarse face, smooth single cut fine face, and one safe edge. This deluxe file has been given a black oxide coating to further assist in preventing loading and as a protective layer against rust, ensuring your file stays at its maximum sharpness. The paddle style tang permits a pack-friendly low profile without the need for a separate grip.
While made in Honduras rather than the USA like Simonds files of old, we can confirm that these files are of good quality, and live up to their stated target hardness of 65-67 RC, being able to cut the 58 RC bits of Rinaldi axes with ease, despite many files on the market failing this test. We do not hesitate to recommend these files.
