Double sided circular steel grail plate

Description

A double sided, circular steel file or grail plate used to round the sides of horn comb teeth which have been left square after cutting with a saw. The thickness of the grail plate has to be the same as the space between the teeth. By a deft movement of the hand, the sides of two teeth are shaped at the same time. This item forms part of the Worshipful Company of Horners collection.
