Product Information:

Our Shinto Saw Rasp is a 9" flat rasp made from 10 hardened teeth saw blades held together by rivets and features both coarse and fine sides with the teeth oriented to cut on the push stroke. The teeth are designed to help prevent clogging but also to be easily cleaned should the need arise. While the tool may seem odd to someone more used to traditional rasps, it works so well it will soon be one of your favorite tools. Suitable for any shaping task from rough to fine work.

    Comments about 9" Shinto Saw Rasp :

    I bought a Shinto 9" saw rasp in the hope that it would simplify the process of reducing the back side of a curly-maple violin neck to dimensions that are playable, comfortable, and properly resonant. This two-sided tool (coarse- and fine-toothed sides) is about 1-1/4" wide -- narrow enough to cut quickly and accurately, but wide enough not to dig in erratially. It leaves a surface that is precise and even, needing only to be smoothed down a little when the dimensions are right. In short, it works better than I could have hoped.

    I bought this to help me shape a gunstock for a flintlock rifle by hand and it is so much faster and easy to work with than a bastarde file.

    Comments about 9" Shinto Saw Rasp :

    I'm learning how to build a flintlock rifle that I'm stocking with curly maple. This tool is excellent for removing large amounts of wood quickly using the coarse side. Using the fine side small amounts can be removed with control leaving a smooth surface. I started roughing out the stock with conventional rasps. After discovering this tool I have been using it almost exclusively to prepare the stock for final shaping with files and scrapers. The friend teaching me is a professional carpenter and wood worker. He has stocked many longrifles over 30 years. He's very impressed with this tool and intends to purchase one. It's very reasonably priced and is an excellent value.

    Comments about 9" Shinto Saw Rasp :

    I've had an old "standard" rasp in my toolbox for many years and with an upcoming project I decided to try the Shinto Saw Rasp. Wow, this thing really works and I am totally satisfied with the performance. It has a rough cut on one side and fine on the other. Its very versatile in that the pull and push cuts give you different degrees of material removal. I tried flipping it by putting the handle in the opposite hand and really got some aggressive material removal on the downstroke to avoid splintering, but still well controlled. I will use this tool again and again, highly recommended.

    I use it for finishing bandsaw cuts. Excellent for smoothing, detailing edges!! The coarse, and fine blade is very handy on the same tool, with just flipping it over. My other detailing files will be little used!!
