Carbide Faced File Guide, Stainless Steel, 59 mm (V3)
Looking for a faster way to perfectly even bevels when grinding blades?
Want perfectly fitting stick-tang blades into the guard or bolster?
- 4 mm thick carbides screwed on, HRC 78
- Non-magnetic, steel dust does not stick to it
- Stainless ,will not rust
- All screws are recessed into the body for easy access on flat platen
- Accepts up to 59 mm wide blades, up to 20 mm thick blades
The file guide is used by clamping the blade between the jaws, enabling you to precision file both sides of the blade dead even using files or a grinder. The benefits are blade bevels starting perfectly even, and stick tang shoulders being dead square and even for perfect bolster fit.
Or anything else you need to file two sides to be the same on..
The file guide is in solid stainless steel, and will not rust when dunked in water during grinding to keep the blade cool. Steel dust will not stick to the non-magnetic steel.
The face is protected by carbide strips, which only diamond or other exceptionally hard tools will scratch. These are 78 HRC and very hard but: NOTICE ceramic belts can and will damage carbide. This tools is for use with hand tools, or normal aluminum oxide belts if using a grinder. The carbides are 4 mm thick and can be removed if required.
The carbide strips are recessed slightly down into the stainless steel for added protection. This way the strips will not be knocked off, or be under pressure when clamping a blade in the file guide. This also ensures there is less pressure on the carbide strip when clamping in a blade as they back onto a shoulder of steel.
The file guide accepts up to 59 mm wide blades, or to be exact there is 59 mm between the inner bolts (approx 2.3").
This "v3" is the new improved model released in January 2018 and about 90 mm x 14 mm x 45 mm in size, made from solid 12 x 12 mm stainless steel and accepts up to a 20 mm thick blade/guide.
The file guide has the CreativeMan.com.au logo laser etched on one side.

Well made tool, good fit and finish, accurate.
it worth it!
These are an excellent value little tool for the shop. It is perfect for aligning plunge lines or guard shoulders with minimum fuss and effort. Having a replaceable carbide bits is great if they eventually wear. Also being bolted down you don't have issues with the glue failing that I have had with other guides. And the price is great.
There was an issue with shipping, but Bjorn went above and beyond to make it right. Very pleased with my purchase!
This is a well made guide. I enjoy using it and it is very tough. Highly recommend!
Not bad on the shipping considering where it comes from (5 days to the US)
Well packaged and well made ,if I needed another I would definitely buy it from creativeman again
I have already recommended others to buy one and plan to share it in my group on Facebook
“Bladesmith for Beginners” which has over 108,000 members
Good size for most designes and very low profile my only critisim is that its a little fiddly to adjust due to its small size . Other than that very happy with the purchase!!
This is the best file guide I have seen on the market. The fit and finish are top shelf. The fact that the carbide inserts are screwed on allows you to replace them should one become broken or chipped. After using the guide I plan on ordering a replacement set of carbide inserts to have as back-up. The fit is excellent giving perfect alignment. Also a 2 1/4 blade fits between the screws. I have been a knife maker for 20 years , this tool impressed me.
