A more aggressive halfround, well suited to initial stock removal on smaller workpieces. If you only make saw handle sized stuff, this and a No.7 halfround should be all you need to work quickly and efficiently.
Each Workshop Heaven hand stitched rasp begins life as a forged and annealed blank of high carbon tool steel is carefully ground and ‘fined’ to a smooth surface before being strapped to a soft anvil to have their teeth individually raised or ‘stitched’ one by one with a special punch and a curved filemakers hammer.
The handles are turned from English walnut with brass ferrules to a 200 year old Holtzappfel pattern, individually fitted and set by hand for a comfortable, elegant and secure grip.

In order to keep your rasps clean and free from corrosion we recommend removing any clogging from the surface with a stiff bristled brush and applying a few drops of metalguard ultra liquid corrosion inhibitor after each use. Store your rasps in such a way that they cannot touch or rub against each other.
