Offset fret crowning file will have improved clearance over the guitar body especially when working on acoustic guitars.
Diamond files will cut in both directions, cut faster and don’t chatter or leave chatter marks.
For beginners we recommend the 300 grit diamond fret crowning file because it’s not as aggressive as the 150 grit file.

I have been using a 3 corner file to restore the crown after leveling which has produced great results. But this sucker does the same thing AND WAY FASTER,so be careful not to remove too much and accidentally grind the top of your newly leveled frets......all and all EXCELLENT product. Totally worth every cent!!!
I love the price for this file so I bought it. The file works as advertised, but the finish on the file was uncomfortable to handle. It felt and looked like a draw file finish on the side panels. That combined with the rough surface of my hands made it awkward to hold. Here is how I fixed it - I buffed it out just like I would frets, starting with 320 sand paper and stopped at 3000. Now it's a pleasure to use. I'm glad I took the 20 minutes to smooth it all out. Now it doesn't mark the wood at all.
This gives a beautiful crown with minimal scratches compared to traditional crowning files. Diamond is definitely the best and Philadelphia Luthier Supply is where you want to buy. You can't beat this price especially when you consider its $50 more for the exact same tool at the other place.
