Product Description

Carbide Faced File Guide, Stainless Steel, 59 mm (V2, smaller version)

 Looking for a faster way to perfectly even bevels when grinding blades?

Want perfectly fitting stick-tang blades into the guard or bolster? 

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. 

The face is protected by carbide strips, which only diamond or other exceptionally hard tools will scratch.

The carbide strips are recessed 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 no pressure on the carbide strip when clamping in a blade.

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").

The file guide is a smaller version of the big "V1" file guide, this version weights about 235 grams (0.52 lb) and is easier to fit on both sides of the platen on a grinder.

The V2 is 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 24 mm thick blade/guide.

The file guide has the logo laser etched on one side.

  4. dont buy 2 Star Review

    When I received the file guide it looked ok but first time I used it I discovered that the carbide inserts had a gap and were not parallel which without modification does not allow for an accurate result.
    My suggestion is to spend the extra money and buy on from 84 engineering

    This file guide is as good as any I have seen. it is better in my opinion than some that are twice the price. The design is well thought out and manufacturing is precise. I will probably get another one soon. The ordering process was painless and delivery was prompt. Highly recommended.
