Research shows that STIHL saw chain files last longer and remove debris faster than some other files on the market.

STIHL saw chain files are designed to help you keep your chain sharp with minimum effort. Available in several diameters to match the exact size of your saw chain gullet.

Made of heavy-duty polymers, our file handles are just as durable, easy to hold and tough to damage. Soft-grip handles are also available for flat or round files.

    Excellent quick easy way to keep your chain sharp.
    i bought this 2 in 1 from my local stihl dealer, my chain was in rough shape. It took me about an hour to get my chain back to like new. My angles were off and depth gauge was way off due to a cheap sharpener kit. Now it takes less then 5 mins to quickly maintain the chain. This product saves a lot of time and will keep your chain like new. I am very happy i spent the money on it. I think if you own a chain saw.....this is for you.

    The Only Hand Sharpner I Will Ever Use
    After years of running chainsaws, I have always struggled with sharpening. Hand files would work for me but after five to six times sharpening, I was off to the shop to have the chain professional sharpened. I purchased the 2-1 sharpener and wasn't sure if I would do any better. It is awesome! I don't take my chains in to be sharpened anymore! The combination of the flat file with the round file guarantees a perfectly sharp and balanced chain. I use this tool multiple times a day when running my ... read more saw and love it. Would not think of ever running a saw without having this tool with me.

    great tool
    I am the owner of a tree service and an instructor for chainsaw safety and tree felling for different government agencies. This is the only filing system we use and I push this on friends in the trade. I sharpened a 24" full comp chain, both sides, 3 swipes per tooth in 3min 58sec and the saw ripped. Now I only have to carry one extra chain per saw because I can file to like new faster than changing the chain. Plus I don't have to take a dull chain back to the shop. AND even the absolute ... read more greenest worker can get a great edge.

    Perfect
    I bought one and really like it, angles and depth is right on. first time you put it on the saw to use its a little awkward but after that you figure it out.

    raker gauge is spot on
    Bought this tool in 3/8,.325,3/8 picco for each of my saws. The hard setting on the raker gauge is spot on for me on oak, have not used the soft side of the guage. This is a high quality tool made well. Used it a lot and can still read the words soft and hard on the raker guage. Would highly recommend this to any one who hand files their saw chain.

    Great tool for out in the woods!
    I've owned a STIHL Stump Vise for the last twenty-five years and use one often in the woods to hold my saw while sharpening the chain. It pounds into the stump easily,and pulls out just as easy. Very durable, easy to use, must have piece of equipment for the serious chainsaw user.

    GREAT for Those Born Without "ThREE" HANDS !
    Knock 'er in; tighten 'er down; dress 'er up; take 'er out; fire 'er up; back to work! Simple as that. Just by lookin' at it , it might work as a replacement tip for your cattle prod! Always multi-tasking. Use your "walkman" tool to tighten 'er down...simple. Enjoy your work day with another great Stihl tool!

    Works as it should.
    File fits nice. File stays put. Good ergonomics. Recommended over using a file without a handle.

    A MUST-HAVE to Keep Your Guide Bar Channel CLEAN !
    In some ways this inexpensive tool is just as valuable as your Guide Bar. You should carry it in your saw's Tool Pouch & clean out the oiling channel every time you pull the Chain off. The newer Bars have inadequate diameter oiling holes, resulting in a "dry Bar" condition regardless of how much you turn-up the Oil Delivery setting. A dirty channel will only exacerbate that problem! And, a screwdriver will not reach down to the bottom of the channel. Most shops tend to forget to file the ... read more rakers when sharpening your chains. This tool is a must-have to ensure the correct amount is filed off.

    Great saw
    The easy start is great. I ruined my old saw when I put regular gas in it. My friend had an easy start saw. I got to use it and loved. When I replaced my old one I purchased the easy start. It has plenty of power and it is easy to use. Love it and I would recommend it perspective buyers.

    file gauge
    The top plate angle and drag depth are pretty self explanatory. The side plate angle is what has me puzzled. I have sighted this with a brand new chain according to the chain spec and still don't really understand how to read the angle on the saw. I am guessing that four out of five ain't bad. 1. top plate angle (check# 2. drag depth #check# 3. bar groove depth #check# 4. bar groove cleaner #check# 5. side plate angle reading # x )

    Best guide for Stihl Sawchain.
    Solid build , no better way to hold a correct angle. With the Stihl File and guide keeps Stihl Saw Chains razor sharp. Save your chains by using this combo. Grinder sharpening at a shop heats the chains and burns the temper out of the cutters. And sharpening at a shop these days can be expensive .

    It Works Better Than Your Eyesight !
    The Stihl File Guide, when used with the FF1 File Guide Holder, will produce a uniformly sharpened chain with the proper angles required. It takes all of the "guess work" out of correctly sharpening your chains. DVD: The picture is worth a thousand words! SUGGESTION: Stihl should produce an online tutorial for ALL products here on the Stihl.com or StihlUSA.com sites. This would eliminate having to provide a DVD with very basic products. Having access to a tutorial for major products sure ... read more would reduce a lot of confusion on the part of consumers and headaches for servicing dealers! Just post a link on the Instructions or Owners Manual.
