The K-type file is manufactured by twisting or grinding a square or triangular tapered shaft so that the cutting edges are almost perpendicular to the long access of the instrument. It is the instrument most commonly used for cleaning and shaping.
The K-file works on the "pull" stroke - that is, by scraping the canal walls as it is withdrawn from the canal. It is advanced to the full working length rotated 1/4 to 1/2 turn clockwise, and withdrawn while being pressed against one of the walls. The process is repeated against each of the walls in turn until the canal is sufficiently enlarged to proceed to the next size instrument. Do not proceed too quickly - it is preferable to utilize an instrument to the maximum extent possible before proceeding to the next instrument in the series. The file must be cleaned repeatedly during use; never use an instrument packed with filings or debris.
