I needed new files to sharpen my saws and made these handles to fit. All files are by Nicholson.

Two are tapered octagonal rosewood with brass ferrel turned from a brass heating nut.
The other is turned from an Iroku door frame found in a builders skip (dumpster)

The Six inch saw is 5/16 inch across the flats.
The Seven inch saw (round handle) is 1/2 inch across the flats.
The Eight inch saw (round handle) is 9/16 inch across the flats

Very impressive, and I’m sure they’re a joy to use. I see acute attention to detail everywhere.

Thanks for sharing this beautiful work.
