Swiss made Glardon-Vallorbe Marking needle files have round handles. Lengths are measured from tip to tip including the handles.
Marking files have the same shape as Half Round files, being tapered in width and thickness, coming to a rounded point at the end. They differ in that they only have cut on the half-round side with the bottom flat side being safe with no cut.
