The class supply list is below and contains links to buy the supplies you need.

Do you know how to put handles on your files properly? (Hint: shoulders should touch the ferrule…). Do you know which file in the picture needs cleaning, and how best to clean it? How about what file shapes, sizes, and cuts are used the most? Separate files for different metals? Best storage solutions? What’s this bastard for? We’ll answer all these questions and more!

You don’t need to buy anything new to benefit from this class. Come and ask all your questions before investing in delicious new files.
