Files that are for frets are expensive, but this one is for a acceptable price. I'm not a professional guitar builder but with some practice and this file anyone can do fret ends. Go watch thomanns youtube video on how to deal with fret ends and sharp frets in which they show you how to use this file. The file is amazing and gets the job done for a reasonable price. Just remember in the end one good tool makes more sense then 5 cheap ones, it will show on your work!
