BEST-IN-CLASS PRODUCTION FileWorks manufacturing methodologies represent industry-recognized best practices, including unrivaled heat treating processes.

High-capacity fulfillment FileWorks is equipped to produce a wide range of steel files, ensuring consistent quality and timely delivery. In total, our production exceeds 6 million pieces annually.

Rigorous Quality Control FileWorks manufacturing processes conform to all international quality standards. Equally important, our quality control oversight extends to inspection of every file produced, as opposed to random sampling models employed by many producers.


QUALITY STEEL An important differentiator for FileWorks is the quality of our steel is outsourced from the best global suppliers. Our steel is characterized by high carbon and chromium content - indispensable elements for developing a product that exceeds the standards of the competition.

OUR DIFFERENTIATORS INCLUDE Carbide chisel cutting for deeper cleaner teeth Salt bath heat treatment for guaranteed hardness to desired specification Hydraulic cutting machines for more precise/even file cutting Glass bead finishing to produce a finer finish and sharper teeth Rust inhibitor to avoid oxidation

The End Result - Superior Files The FileWorks quality guarantee promises the optimal materials and processes from start to finish. Our files are differentiated by: • Quality of metal • Depth/sharpness of teeth • Trueness of tooth pattern • Level of heat treat • File straightness • Finish of file type • Style options of handle
