Etymology 1[edit]

From Old Spanish filo, from Latin fīlum. Doublet of hilo. Although both were inherited, it is not fully certain why the two diverged and why filo, preserving the initial -f- from Old Spanish, took on the sense of "edge", while hilo maintained that of "string, thread" (in line with the original Latin meaning).

  1. edge (of the blade of an instrument)
