Used for working small flats, cutting grooves and forming acute internal corners down to 60 degrees, the triangular section and finely toothed corners of the three-square rasp makes it a versatile favourite.
Working into the groove at the top of a 3D heart shape for example, or undercutting a lambs tongue detail. The last third of the rasp is tapered, so it can also work a groove into a flat surface.
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.

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.
