Default safe edge file supplier

Anyone have a supplier for quality safe edge files? I'm sure Brownels has them but my eyes might be glazing over looking through all of the files listed.
I don't want to buy a good quality file and then grind off a side or two to get what I'm looking for.
Any help would be appreciated

I was thinking along the lines of pillar files with safe edges. But thanks for the link all the same.

I don't think I have ever seen a safe edge pillar file. Good luck on your quest.

I don't get it. Is there something I am missing.

There seems to be copious quantities of 'safe edge' pillar type files available.
In all sizes and cuts. Hmmmmmmmmmm
