Workshop Heaven Hand Stitched Half Round Rasp 150mm No3 (28tcm)

(1 review) Write a Review

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 file makers hammer.

The handles are turned from English walnut with brass ferrules to a 200 year old Holtzapffel pattern, individually fitted and set by hand for a comfortable, elegant and secure grip.

  • Overall length: 290mm approx

Rasp Care
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.

    We bought these continental rasps as an economical alternative to our existing Auriou rasps. They really are excellent. They cut well and leave a good finish. A pleasure to use.
