Half Round, Diamond and Flat Files from Cooksongold

We understand that your designs need to be completed to the highest quality with only the best finish, which is why we stock a selection of professional files.

Our hand files are available in a range of cuts, from 00 to 4. The cut and shape of the file you purchase is down to the finish and design you want from your jewellery pieces. For removal of metal and shaping, starting with cut 0 is ideal. Then move through the grades, from cut 2 to 4, to smooth your designs to a high finish.

As part of our files range, we stock the professional Bären needle files. These particular files have a smaller body than a hand file and can be held comfortably without the use of a wooden or plastic handle. Our Bären needle files effortlessly cut and shape precious metals, stones, ceramics and glass.

For the best results, it’s important to keep your files clean and stored in a dry place. We sell a selection of file brushes and cleaning materials to ensure your files are always in the best condition and your jewellery designs always have an expert finish.
