Like everyone else, we are suckers for hand made rasps. These Gramercy Tools rasps are hand cut and you will be surprised not only by how fast they work, but by how smooth a surface they leave. Made of surgical grade stainless steel for a tough, long life with a brass ferruled wood handle. The lengths given are the approximate working length of the rasp. "Teeth coarseness" is the approximate number of teeth per inch of the rasp teeth.

Cabinet rasps (see accessory list below) are designed for average applications. These modeling rasps are for smaller work and where detail, control, and finesse are required. When we designed these rasps we really wanted to emphasize their narrowness, and they are narrower than most modelling rasps we know of, so that you can work scroll work like that found on fancy chairs and such. The longer rasps give a longer stroke and work faster, the shorter rasps are easier to handle for very precise work. The rasps are made in Pakistan, which has a long tradition of metalwork, by a single craftsman with very limited production who is working to our specifications. Sizes will come in an out of stock as supply permits. The handles are made in USA.
Note: Rat-tail rasp not shown.

Rat Tail Rasp

By: MattR (Feb, 2016)

I bought the rat tail as I have a ridiculous number of furniture-grade copes in hard maple. While nothing in life is a magic bullet, this rasp is pretty damn good. After several hours of continuous use spread over 2 weeks my fingers might feel a slight loss of bite,but it has not shown down it actual use. It's fast and the finish is fine. It's already paid for itself and I'll be picking up a few others after my next paycheck.

I tried your rasps at the Saturday tool fest in Red Hook yesterday. Wow. I have not used a rasp of such good quality and it changed my head around. I will be ordering one very shortly.

The 8" Modeller's rasp is unbelievable. I was surprised by how fast and smooth they work. I need to pick up a full sized rasp in the future.
