Stainless Steel Hand K-File
Waldent Professional K File is manufactured by twisting or grinding a square or triangular tapered shaft so that the cutting edges are almost perpendicular to the long axis of the instrument. They are designed with four cutting edges & a 60° tip with a 135° cutting angle with good cutting ability.
This together with its tight spiral ensure a safe preparation.
With a more refined cutting edge and a square cross-section, these files last up to 8-10 endodontic cases.
- For cleaning and shaping of canals.
- Negotiating the canals with hand files prior to using rotary files.
- It can be used as a pre-bent file in curved canals.
- Sharp and mirror-like finishing edge.
- Its hard-fiber stainless steel prevents corrosion after repeated cleaning and sterilization.
- Have less separation potential.
- Have the potential to bypass obstruction with great ease.
- Provide Smooth Tactile Feel during Instrumentation.
- Used with rasping, pulling motion, or watch winding motion.
- Tighter flutes, with more in number when compared to the reamer.
- Handles are made up of medical grade plastic, ISO color-coded &; numbered according to size.
- Blades are made of a special stainless steel alloy, which allows a high degree of elasticity & tensile strength.
- Inactive pilot tip.
- K file is the strongest of the hand file.

CE & ISO Certified
- For severely curved canals.
Note: Recommended to use in the single patient only.
- Made of high-quality Stainless Steel – Allow a high degree of Elasticity & Tensile Strength.
- Improved Design of hand end – Better Grip.
- It’s a Finger/ Hand Instrument.
- The K-type file works in Filing motion (Push-Pull motion).
- ISO color-coded handles by size.
- Have non-cutting pilot tip – prevent transportation.
- Autoclavable at 135° Celsius
- Pack of 6 Files.
Watch Winding Technique
- The use of the file in a forward and backward motion, as if watch winding, with slight apical pressure.
- This allows the file to effectively debride the canal dentine by moving slowly down the canal.
- For K-type files, once the file has reached the desired working length a push and pulling action is used around the circumference of the canal, while only maintaining contact with the canal wall on the outstroke to minimize a debris blockage apically.
