AXES & TOMAHAWKS, SHARPENERS, Helko German Axe, CLASSIC LINE, Traditional Line
The Helko Werk Dual Sided Axe File, presented by Destsche Feilen und Maschinenfabriken (German File and Machinery Works), has been designed specifically to bring an axe blade to a general purpose mid-level sharpness. At this stage the axe may either be used as is for general work, or further honed with more precise tools, such as our Axe Sharpening Stone, to achieve a fine or razor edge.
The top side of the file is a single-cut fine tooth pattern. The bottom side is a double-cut fine tooth pattern. The double-cut teeth provide rapid material removal for reprofiling, or removing dings and nicks form an axe edge. The single-cut teeth are for finer touch ups, finishing, and deburring. To prevent accidental damage to adjacent surfaces, the file has no teeth on its edges. The flat handle provides a secure grip and makes for convenient storage, with a hanging hole at the end. This file fits neatly into our Axe Maintenance Kits.
