Product Details

Swiss made Glardon-Vallorbe Balance Wheel Escapement files have square handles. Escapement file lengths are measured from tip to the end of the cut and do not include the tang. Escapement files are also called Watchmakers files.

Balance wheel escapement files are similar in shape to barrette files, tapered to a point and with a top that is safe, but have a curved surface on the cut side instead of being flat.

Measurements given are at the thickest point.


Choose from 3 cuts:

*Cut 10 is an extremely fine cut, rated at 156 lines per square cm. Used by watchmakers for polishing pivots and balance wheels
