I've been doing a lot of filing lately, but haven't stopped to consider the handle I've been using. Today I came across my chainsaw file, and compared its handle with what I had been using for a taper file handle.

It feels so much better in your hand. The chamfered front gives you an opposable grip that feels much more solid

So I decided to turn one of my own and try it out. Anyone else have any suggestions or experience that will guide my quest for file handle nirvana?

That looks real nice! I recently found a plastic handle in the shed out back, so I've been using that, but before that, I just had a dozen or so wraps of duct tape on the one I used most often. :D
