Checkering files are parallel in width and gently tapered in thickness. Over cut is parallel to file edges and uncut is 90 degree to over cut. Checkering files are used for putting serrations on knife edges and to obtain a checkered design similar to a gun hand grip. Measurements given are at thickest point. Checkering files have different teeth or lines per square inch standards than ordinary precision files. Below is a listing of cuts and lines per square inch (LPSI) in black and lines per square centimeter (LPSC) in red

Things you should know about ordering hand files:
Glardon-Vallorbe Swiss Made Precision Files are measured from the point where the teeth begin to the end of the file. A 6" precision file will measure 8 1/2" long from tip to end of tang, but it is called a 6" file.
Glardon-Vallorbe Swiss Made Precision Files are graded with a number from 00 for coarsest to 6 for finest. Remember, the higher the number the finer the cut.
