why this product

Unlike disposable emery boards and flimsy nail files, this stainless steel version will last for years of well-kept nails. Manufactured by an Italian company that specializes in nail and personal care, the medium 180 grit of this durable stainless steel nail file is specially designed to file down and shape fingernails. Use the polished, pointed tip of the file to clean under nail edges. The file has been finished with a special sandblasted finish in order to protect the stainless steel surface against lingering fingerprints. When grooming is done, store the file safely and securely in its accompanying leather sheath, which is stamped with Aplen's logo. Note that the leather grain can vary in texture.  

use & care

Keep file dry and clean. Always store in the leather sheath for protection.
