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 ordered both files! I used one on my medium jumbo frets on my MIM Teleaster! Take you time and it works well! Crowned the frets to perfection! After I used it the frets were very easy to polish up to a smooth bright shine with little effort!

Great files

I use to do this with a 3 corner file - never again. These files are easy to use, work great and won't damage the fingerboard. It pays for itself after just one use.
