Vallorbe® Premium Rasps are top-of-the-line. A good rasp is a must-have for every woodworker and with care will last a long time, but a truly exceptional rasp…well, that’s a bit different. These machine made wonders are as close to hand stitched rasps as can be made, and they sport a density of sharp teeth that cheap rasps could only wish for! Vallorbe® Premium Rasps almost do the work for you and will last a lifetime with a little bit of care.

General Rasp Information: Cut is expressed as a number. The
smaller the number the more aggressive/faster material is removed and the rougher
the exposed surface. The larger the number the less aggressive/slower material
is removed and the smoother the exposed surface. #5 and #6 are consider ideal
for woodworking as a compromise to offer a quick cutting action but leaving a
smooth surface. Also, the longer/larger a tool is the larger the cutting
surface of the tool and the more pressure that can be brought to bear on the
working surface making larger tools the tool of choice for faster stock
removal.



This 8" rasp is 22mm wide (widest point) x 4.3mm thick (thickest point), with a 200mm-long cutting surface that narrows to a point and is covered in teeth all the way out to the point – a feature that is very expensive to produce but makes for a very versatile tool.
