Description

This Friedrich Dick round (rat-tail) needle file is ideal for enlarging, defining and smoothing holes, openings and small-radius curves, and for smoothing and refining tubing or fine round or concave structures. The file tapers to a fine point and has teeth around its entire surface.

This file has a German cut #2; German-cut files are graded by the number of teeth, counting teeth parallel to the long axis of the file. German cuts start coarser than Swiss and go finer, offering more increments for more precise cutting. In all cut styles, the higher the number, the finer its cut.

Needle files feature a miniature profile with a shorter cutting surface (typically about half their length) and round, narrow handles. These small files are ideal for working on fine details and in small areas of the workpiece; they're ideal when access and surface finish take priority over metal removal. Though they can be used as-is, securing the file in a handle (available separately) improves control for better precision and tool safety.

Among the finest jewelers' files in the world, Friedrich Dick files are made of tough chrome/tool steel alloy and precisely machined to yield sharp corners and fine points. These files have deep-cut teeth that provide efficient, uniform stock removal; they are 66–67 HRC hardness for exceptional service with minimal care.
