Excellent Tool
23 Jun 2015

" This file went through car interior plastic like a hot knife through butter. The file has two separate surfaces (smooth and slightly rough), which work extremely well and the tip performs a much sharper slicing action which shaves off chunkier sections with ease. A brilliant tool. "

Quality product

" This is a good quality file, as expected from Bahco. Sharp, and can handle quite hard material, cuts softer metals (brass, aluminum etc) very easily. Combination of coarse and fine sides in one tool is useful. "

just as expected...

" The Bahco file is(as you would expect from a german company with traditions)excellent quality,and when I say that I mean that everything from it's ergonomic design to the materials used (steel,the plastic for the handle which will not fall off after a couple of days use) is just perfect!!!The price could be a bit more reasonable but still a good/quality deal!

Quality file
7 Mar 2012
By clive369

" I've used one of these daily for 4yrs on site as an electrician and it's a good piece of kit. Typical Bahco quality, i.e. well made and long lasting. If you're the kind of person that likes to buy an item once then this is the one to go for. After 4yrs the handle has come off once or twice but it can be easily glued back in with a flexible glue like MS polymer.
One piece of advice I'd give is don't use this for filing tough stainless steel conduit or the like as it won't do the file any good.
But for mild steel conduit, steel tray, steel trunking etc plus all kinds plastic (i.e. 99% of what most sparks use it for) then it's perfect. "

Usual Bahco quality
18 Jul 2015
By Sparky1969

" As an electrical engineer I have used these files in all their shapes and sizes for many years. They are good quality, comfortable files, and this one ticks all the boxes. My only criticism is that it's a tad expensive and the bigger kits are much better value for money. "

Good file but poor handle

" Handle fell off within minutes; slips back on easily enough but why not fix the issue. File itself is excellent "

No better than budget
10 Jan 2015
By BoatBum

" I expected more from this file and selected it because I thought it'd be a quality item. I was wrong. It's no better than the budget files I've used previously, and already the blade is loose where it fits into the handle. I'll be returning this for a refund and will buy elsewhere. "
