    A metal machinists supply store or online.

    I have many tiny and intricately shaped Swiss files. I bought them almost 50 years ago.

    Any metal file should be hardened all the way through, except the tang.

    I'm not sure about wood files. They are surely hardened.

    What do you plan to file, because there are many types of files.

    Most files have been heat treated all the way through. But case hardening just isn't something that gets to the core.
