Mani K Files (K files)
Mani K Files are the global "Gold Standard" for quality and precision in hand K files. K files are used to explore and negotiate canals, perform shaping (if desired), and to verify apical diameter, among many clinical indications. The majority (60%) of clinicians purchase 25 mm K files, 35% purchase 21 mm K files and approximately 5% purchase 31 mm K files. Tactile sensation is not as acute with the 25 & 31 mm hand files as it is with the 21 mm hand files. K files are used in a 1/4 turn and vertical pull motion. Single use for K files is recommended. By design, Mani D Finders are approximately 3-4x stiffer than Mani K files.
