Good to know !!! I really want to file down the braze would that weaken the integrity of the joint?

Not could but will weaken the joint. Thing is you probably were thinking of making the surface flat, which the brass thickness above the surface is what holds it together, so then it would fail. Just polish the brass if you must otherwise leave it alone. It may fail anyway – no way to know. Just get it usable and put it to work, if it holds up then do more restoration.
