I’ve often wondered why a larger file wasn’t recommended, since you can’t get the top of the cutter and the gullet in a single pass with the proper one
The cutter changes height from the beginning to the end of it's life.
So a file would only be the perfect size to do what you've suggested at one part in the tooth's life.
Plus the fact that the recommended file size leaves the optimum radius under the top plate of the tooth.(we hope)
