A vicious stock remover for hogging away waste on flat or convex surfaces with minimum effort, this heavy rasp is a delightful tool to work with.  Typical examples of its work include forming a square blank into a tapered octagon for a leg, rounding over a chair back or radiussing the corners of boards.
The sides are safe so you can work right up to internal corners without fear of cutting into them.

  • Shoulder to tip: 250mm
  • Overall length: 395mm approx
  • Face width: 24mm x 5mm
  • Coarseness: 10 teeth per square cm (very coarse)
  • Fitted with a Holtzapffel pattern walnut handle

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.

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.
