Hiroshima Files* was founded in 1937 in its namesake city - a city known in Japan as the best source of high quality files. They started to make precision nut and fret file in 1983 after getting requests from major Japanese instrument manufacturers. Since then they have become the file of choice for many of the major builders around the world. Think of a guitar company and you're probably thinking of a company that uses their Uo-Chikyu brand files.
We supply all of their Uo-Chikyu brand precision fret and nut files.
5001 Series nut files are very precise and come in a number of sizes. The slot that they cut is U-shaped. We sell any of the available sizes and we've also pre-assembled a few cost-saving and convenient sets that match popular string gauges.
The 5002 Series of fret crowning files are all double-sided, with both sides having the same radius. There are three sizes available. The most popular option is the cost-saving set of all three.
Fret File Set of 3
Hiroshima Files' most popular line of Uo-Chikyu precision files are their Swiss-pattern needle file sets. These files have had applications in model building and jewellery manufacturing for many years. We've found that they also have a home in luthiers' studios. They're perfect for working on the fine details of shell, wood, plastic, and some metals.
Sets include 5, 8, 10, or 12 files and prices range from $38.00 to $79.00.
