What is a diamond needle file?

A diamond needle file is a type of file that is capable of smoothing and sharpening hardened materials that ordinary files can't, such as carbide.

A diamond needle file also has a fine point to allow for work to be carried out in small spaces with precision.

How are diamond files created?

Diamond needle files are created using nickel to produce electroplated diamond on steel, providing a much finer file.

Why use a diamond file?

Unlike ordinary files, diamond files are capable of sharpening and smoothing hardened materials such as carbide steel.
