As Paul Sellers recounts here, the quality of current Nicholson files has suffered horribly since the firm moved production to Mexico.

That said, I’ve taken to looking through boxes of files at estate sales and flea markets. The vintage files were made during a time where the company still had a commitment to quality. You can pick up files for barely over a dollar and they’ll be good for a few sharpenings. Of course you’ll have to sort through a whole gaggle of beaters to find the couple that will meet your needs…
