A file
was a tool used for slowly cutting away various materials. When rubbed against something, its design would slowly grain away whatever it was used on.

It was a common practice for people to send files to prisoners so that they could work away at their cell bars and escape.


Guybrush Threepwood found a file inside a Carrot cake sent to Otis while he was imprisoned on Mêlée Island.


Threepwood used the file in the Governors Mansion in order to acquire the Idol of Many Hands.
