Questions & Answers for Diamancel Diamond File For Foot Calluses #20

Question
What is the handle made of?
I currently use a Dr. Scholl's foot file, but I've broken two of them because the handle snaps off with too much pressure. Will this one last longer?

It's a metal handle covered by a rubber grip so that when you hold it is comfortable (& it really is comfortable).

yes it lasts (almost) forever because it is a one piece construction, there is no soft spot or crease to make it crack or break due to forced pressure, in fact it bends slightly when used which shows how resilient this tool is

I've used everything and this one works the best, it actually files off the dead skin which you can see because you use it when your feet are dry.. its also made very well, can be used in any direction and makes my feet so super smooth and soft so it may be expensive but it will last a very long time and therefore less expensive to keep replenishing when your $2 pumice falls to pieces

If you use this file you will not wonder if it works, you will see and feel results. It is a little pricer than other files, but I think in this instance you are getting what you pay for. Other files I used never delivered longlasting significant results. This file works.

If you have problems with calluses, this is for you. I thought it was going to be a piece of junk because it seems flimsy, but the bendy metal contours to your foot. After a few uses my feet are really smooth, which is saying a LOT for my feet.

This is not the first diamond file I have tried, but it is the best, hands down.

On the other hand, if you just have dry heels I don't know if I would bother... a drugstore file probably takes care of that just fine.

This one is much more textured and much harder than the drugstore types. It is ROUGH! The more pressure you apply, the foot skin just falls off like snow (sorry that is really gross, but it's true). Kind of like filing your fingernails. This is extremely effective and your feet feel so good afterwards. I paid $38 in-store and yes that was a lot, but it is much more effective than wimpy store brands or pumice stones. (Plus doesn't get water-logged like a pumice stone.)

I had really bad dry heels. Chapped, rough, peeling. Horrible. Drugstore kind was not good enough. This one is hardcore but gentle if used properly and slowly and don't overdo it. This one is super thin and flexible. Also very easy to clean and you will never need another one.

Worth it if you have bad feet.

I think because it works so well and it won't wear out. Instead of buying a cheap replacement part every year or six months, it has a lifetime use. Diamond dust, after all. If the company is only selling one per user every ten years, rather than a cheap file every 4 months...you see how the perceived and real value is much higher for this file. You the consumer save in the long run, and aren't adding junk to the landfill pile.

No. It only hurts if you are using it on soft skin which doesn't need to be exfoliated anyway (like the pad of your big toe). On the calluses, it doesn't hurt, it just feels like when you file your fingernails -- no pain unless you filed so short that you were hitting the cuticle.

It has a plastic handle and the file has a metal base. The little circles on it are what does the work (which they do well). I am going to be naive here and so probably wrong, but they do appear to be diamond "dust" (?) of some sort. Whatever they are - they work really good.

The file itself is all metal, doesn't bend or anything, very sturdy. The rough "dots" are like teeny tiny rocks somehow super-glued to the metal. I don't know if it's real "diamonds" of course, but it feels like it!

The 20 is a coarser file. Used as a file to file the dead callused skin away. The 11 is called a "buffer". It is not as coarse and won't be as beneficial on the hard, yellowed, cracked skin. In my opinion, the 11 is an every day item for people with every day feet. The 20 is for those with more problem skin.
