Silversmith riffler files are used for removing metal and smoothing in tight places.
This series of riffler files are 7” overall length and double-ended. The middle portion serves as the handle. Teeth are cut in small areas on each end.
Proper cleaning of files with a file card and wire brush helps to keep the finish of the workpiece smooth and free of unwanted scratches, and prevents chips from building up in the teeth of the riffler file.
