Post up your favorite file brand. I want to buy a dozen of files but don't know which brand is best.

Vallorbee are my favorite double bevel. The straight across teeth and then the angled. After that Bahco.
Mike, ever use the Viiala (or Vllala) made in Portugal in my pic?

Many don't hold Vallorbe in high regard, but my experience has been different. I actually don't really like save edge, mainly use pferd. Who is holding the file is more important nine times out of ten than brand IMO.

Didnt care for the Viilia and the woodsman pro was the worse made I have ever seen. I used woodsman pro for raker files.
The old stihl files before 2009 were good. The older save edge were good.

The last I had before mailing them off.

I don't care for the single bit vallorbee. The ones I've got now are lasting better than any I've tried.
