Product Details

Unusual, yet highly effective, this Japanese rasp is made up of ten double edged saw blades formed into a lattice pattern. Based on the same principles as the Japanese saws, this rasp cuts very quickly and efficiently with little effort required. Ideal for use with wood and plywood as well as metals, plastics and plaster. Mounted on a lacquered wooden handle the blade is 280mm in length with 10tpi on one side and 25 tpi on the other.

These carving files are the best we have ever tried and from the outset proved themselves worthy of the excellent reputation they hold worldwide. Requiring very little pressure from the user, these files cut very quickly and leave a clean, smooth surface in their wake. Look closely at the surface of one of these files and the reason for this soon becomes apparent. Each blade is made up of a series of chemically etched ridges rather than individual teeth. Grooves are cut at regular intervals along each ridge to form a diagonal pattern that runs the length of the blade. This combination of ridges and grooves makes the surface of the file act like it is made up of hundreds of tiny blades that plane the surface of the wood instead of scratch it away. The resultant finish is astounding.

Alan Marshall

I bought one of these a few years ago, they are simply brilliant, they don't clog, they cut fast, they need less effort than ordinary rasps and the finer side leave a better finish than any other rasp I have used. A bit of advice though, a good sturdy glove saves your fingers from the tip when using them!
