Double-edge Fret File

About This Item

Our best-selling fret crowning file!
Precision-cut teeth for accurate fret shaping.

Each of our popular traditional 7-3/8" x 5/8" tool-steel files has two different 4" hollow-ground cutting edges, for recrowning a variety of fretwire sizes. These files were designed by luthiers for luthiers and are an economical way to get your fretting kit started. The handle is rubber-coated for comfort.

Works on stainless frets, too!
All of our tools are suitable for use on stainless-steel fretwire, with the exception of our Fret Tang Nippers. Modern stainless-steel fretwire is known to be harder than the traditional nickel-silver blends, but our own shop experience indicates the wire does not cause premature wear of files or sandpapers.

I bought this fret file after I recognized that I'm not able to made fret crowning work using self made tool (from some internet project). With this tool I finished fret crowning in 2 hours. This was my first fret levelling work and I strongly recommend buying this tool!

I have bought about three of these in the past year or so and every one of them are performing just as advertised. The latest I used for my home built 7 string and it fit perfectly. String height was perfect too.
