With a saw file, practice, and a little instruction you can keep your saws cutting swift and straight, and turn any flea market find into a gem. Our range of Corradi saw files will work for Western Saws from 6 TPI to 15 TPI. The Corradi needle file will be perfect for 15 TPI and finer saws. We particularly like the Corradi files for their geometry - they have small arrises (the flat spot at the tip of each edge, think of a triangle with the top knocked off), which equates to more control over the size of your gullets. With a large arris it is easier to gouge out the gullets and shrink your teeth. Corradi Saw Files allow for much more careful sharpening, especially with higher TPI saws.

We have found that for larger backsaws and our hardware store saw a 3-square machinists file produces the best result. 3-square files have the smallest arrises, and being second cut, cut finer and better on thin plate saws. The narrow arrises mean deeper gullets and faster sawing.

You should always fit a file to a handle for proper use; saw files have different tangs than regular files and therefore do not correspond with the usual handle size recommendations. Nearly all of our saw files use a #3 Skroo-zon handle, the 7" slim uses a #4 (see below for the link). For the needle file the collet handle linked below works well and is the only thing we stock that fits.

See our Specs tab for sizing info and TPI recommendations.

Corradi Saw Files
By: Mike Z. (Sep, 2021)
I wanted to add a review since there are none right now. After much hand holding and help from the good people at TFWW, I purchased a handful of various files for sharpening western saws. The Corradi files are the best I've seen the last decade, hands down. Others whose brands won't be mentioned were literally unusable. I can sharpen my back and panel saws again, and recommend these files to anybody who needs to sharpen their own saws. I hope the quality remains as good files are as scarce as hens teeth on the market today!
I own this product.
