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.

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.
