The rasp is a tool of ancient origins, used for slotting, grinding, scraping, sanding wood and hard materials. It is similar to the file but with bigger teeth and sparse. They are distinguished by the shape of the section (flat, half round, cabinet, oval and round) and for the size. The quality of a rasp is primarily related to the hardness of its steel, and proof of the teeth. Rasps offered by us are all made by hand and engraved with patience and skill. Their quality is unmatched in the market. The CP Files are produced in Japan and are an effective means for roughing fast even on very hard woods. The Microplane "... these have to be seen to be believed."
