That is an interesting point of translation. Here's the Hebrew words behind the "file" translation of the KJV...

הַפְּצִ֣ירָה פִ֗ים

A word that is rather close to the first word is...

which basically means to peel off.

So that helps us when considering the further clarification of "with the mouth" or "edge"

A tool used to "peel off with an edge" would seem to fit the word "file" quite nicely.
