  • Introduction

    Designed in collaboration with renowned watchmakers, Glardon® escapement files guarantee you high-quality Swiss Made products manufactured from a high-carbon steel.

    Available up to cut 10 (156 teeth/cm), with sharp edges and an extra slim point, our Glardon® escapement files are perfectly suited to work requiring a low removal capacity. They are perfect for gold, platinum, steel and titanium alloys.

    An escapement file is characterised by :

    • Its profile :  dovetail, knife pointed, barrette, halfround, round, crossing, three square, watch anchor, warding, pillar,  square and equalling, etc. We have more than fifteen different profiles available.
    • Its length : this is measured in millimetres and does not include the tang.
    • Its cut : Glardon® escapement files benefit from a double cut. This is indicated on a scale ranging from 00 which is the coarsest, to 10 which is the finest. Each of these cuts equates to a certain number of teeth per square centimetre.
