SCHILBACH Float (Dovetail file for frog making and repair)
The Float is a tool for preparation of the dovetail in the frog, for the pearl slide or to prepare the bow side of bass frogs.
The Float is an almost forgotten tool for preparation of the dovetail in the frog, for the pearl slide or to prepare the bow side of bass frogs. In collaboration with Sebastian Dir and Reinhard Kapeller, we turned this tool into a high tech instrument.
In order to create a precise and durable tool, we have opted for a very fine-grained tool steel, which is distortion-free, black gas nitrided. This combination results in a very durable tool that can withstand extreme conditions.
We rounded off the whole thing with very pleasant and high-quality beechwood handles by VALLORBE.
Thus, we can offer the bowmaker & restorer a practical, extremely high quality and durable tool.
