A file I've never seen


Recommended Posts

Went to a particularly large and very interesting estate sale both Friday and Sunday and bought a bunch of stuff.  I found this file there and of all my years going through jewelers tool, machinist tools and gunsmithing supply catalogs, I do not ever recall seeing one.  I believe it is for draw filing and does have a slight bow to it.  It is a Baiter Swiss made tool  and aside from the bits of aluminum stuck to (which did pick off easily) it looks unused.  I regret not buying the box of file handles!  Has anyone else seen these before?  Maybe more common in Europe?

It is a dedicated draw file.  I have only seen one before, and that because another forum member found a few of them a couple of years ago and sent me one. :)

The previous owner seemed to buy everything in multiples and I dug through every box in the sale hoping to find a case of them.
