Heller NuCut Rasp/File No. 2797 Bent Tang
This is a nice arch bottom file with the bent handle tang so the handle clears the work piece while in use. As you can see in the photos, the file body is not flat, is bowed on purpose with a mild outside radius, About 3/16" straight measure at each end from the center of the file is the amount of arch. This file has been lightly used but has lots of life left in it. It is clearly marked "2797 HELLER NUCUT MADE IN U.S.A." and has the Heller horse logo also. The handle is a heavy duty hardwood file handle with the integrated steel furrule. Very sturdy, fits snug. The handle was also made in U.S.A. by Lutz. It's in new condition. Heller is a well known quality tool maker in HELLER NEWARK N.J. U.S.A..
