Product Description

The Simonds Vixen flexible hand file has a rectangular shape with no tang, and has curved standard pattern teeth on both sides for smoothing and shaping straight surfaces. It has curved-cut teeth for fast cutting action for a smooth finish on metals. The file has a flexible body with no tang for use in a two-hand file holder (sold separately).

Hand files are used to remove material and smooth and shape workpieces. They have forward-facing cutting teeth and cut when pushed over either a stationary or rotating workpiece. Single-cut teeth are single rows cut diagonally across the width of the file. Double-cut teeth have two sets of rows cut in opposite directions. American pattern files have three coarseness grades. Coarse, also known as bastard cut, is suitable for efficient, heavy material removal where finish is not a concern. Medium, also known as second cut, offers average material removal and finish quality. Fine, also known as smooth cut, provides the smoothest finish. Swiss pattern files have eight coarseness grades, from 00 (coarse), 0 (medium), and 1 to 6 (fine to finest), offering a smoother finish than equivalent American pattern files. For Swiss pattern files the length of the tool is the length of the blade, not counting the tang, which is the pointed end fitted for a handle; for American pattern files the length of the tool is its entire length, including the tang.

Simonds International manufactures tools for cutting and finishing. The company, founded in 1832, is headquartered in Fitchburg, MA.

I have both 14 inch files. These are excellent and I am very

happy to find them at Amazon. Such items are not available at

hardware stores. They hold an edge well and are used to sharpen

runners on an ice-scooter. They keep their cutting edge after use.

Using it as a deburring tool for my homebuilt airplane project. Screwed it to a 2x2 and it works like a charm.

The file was selected as it was an exact replacement for an antique auto body tool repair in my shop.
