Product Details

Pippin files are tapered in width and thickness, combining the cross-sections of the round with the crossing file and having the edge of a knife file. Pippin files are used for finishing the junction of two different curved surfaces and for opening slots when a "V" shape is required. Measurements given are at thickest point of the file.

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.

Unique and very versatile file!

I have so many files - didn't think I really needed or wanted any more, but this pippin design is such a handy one. I'm friends with a locksmith and I know he has a few of these but I'm not sure how they're used with locks exactly, and I never got to hold one in hand before ordering. It's not real apparent in photos but the sides of this file are not flat but rather slightly convex, which was a slight disappointment for me and my intended uses, but it works beautifully as all Vallorbe and Swiss files do. Knife edge and back are single cut, the back being fairly less aggressive. It's harder to find American mill files with the rounded edges these days but this is a better replacement for wide slots and transitions on work where needle files are just too small - easier to achieve nice edge transitions than with a round file and/or half round. I wish they made this one in an 8-0 or even a 00.
