This is a decent item. The description and photo are very accurate. My reason for giving it 4 stars and not 5 is because I really wanted a finer grit nail file, and there is no description letting me know how fine the grit is. It is rougher than I would have liked. I have purchased a glass nail file elsewhere, which is very fine grit, and it's great in glass, because it doesn't lose it's effectiveness over time like the disposable ones made from sandpaper. I bought 3 of these as gifts, thinking they would be good for baby nails. I don't think they're going to work for that, because they are too rough. I think this would be better for thick finger nails and toenails, not as much so for thin or brittle nails. This one is decent quality, but I would consider it much higher quality if it was smoother.

I ordered 3 of the files, wanting to use one and have the others for stocking stuffers...they arrived in time, and looked like they would have been excellent to use but all were broken. I had read the reviews and although one warned about poor packaging, I thought I'd try, hoping the feedback might have improved that issue. Sadly, no...my files were sent in their own clear plastic sleeves, but simply placed into a regular plastic envelope--no stiffening, no padding, nothing--not even paper wrapped around them. When they arrived, the package was poked thru in the back---something had hit or bent the files, so all were broken inside their plastic sleeves--Glass is not flexible! At least the shards were contained in the sleeves, but I was disappointed. I wrote to Overstock Customer service and they refunded my card immediately, after alerting the shipper (DHL). I think these would be great tools and perform as listed, if only they had been packaged smarter! Guess it's something not to order online.
I don't know why I didn't hop on the crystal file bandwagon ages ago; I guess I was afraid of change. This file is perfect! I was a bit apprehensive about how it would feel on my nails (I had the thought of a rigid, broken glass bottle in mind), but if you're used to using emery files, the feel is between "medium" and "coarse". I've had it for about a month now and I really love it!
