This special rasp was suggested to us by Clark & Williams Planemakers. It’s a traditional tool for the specialized trade of saw handle making, although anybody working in a closed space will find this rasp useful. It’s basically a 6" hand-cut cabinetmaker’s rasp with teeth on the half round side only and bent concave. These features allow you to easily shape the inside curves of a handle without hitting the opposite side of the handle opening. The bend in the rasp also helps you hug the curve you are shaping to give you more control. We know this is a highly specialized tool, but it’s perfect for its tasks. We think it may find some application in shaping more general inside curves in other projects (not just saw or plane handles). And even if it only appeals to tool makers, we are happy to do our part and return this tool to availability after disappearing for a century. Hand-cut random pattern. Flat side smooth. Edges safe. 6" long, fine cut. With wood handle. Made of surgical grade stainless steel for a tough, long life. Approximately 20 teeth per inch.

Great tool....but...

By: Casey (Nov, 2013)

I recently received this rasp and am quite fond of it. It cuts great and leaves quite a good finish. I do, however, wish that it were a bit more curved and that an option with more coarse teeth were available. Also, a larger handle would be greatly appreciated. The one on the rasp is quite small and gets uncomfortable after extended use.

Who is Gramercy

By: Ja Alex (Oct, 2013)

Hello to you out in I-Net Tool Shopping Land. I received my Curved Rasp today along with a 16/10" rasp. Yes I shelled out the Bucks for them, my last rasps I purchased back in 1979.They were a lot cheaper then, and so was my wage as a apprentice boat builder. Well the years of use-abuse is quite long and all my hand tools are showing there age. I have to say ,I shopped around and picked Gramercy because of 3 factors. The first was price not wishing to spend a bundle, cause I don't have it, second was I bought Gramercy's Saw Vice replacing a older saw vise and wooden saw holders I've had with mixed views. Gramercy made a fantastic Tool I use weekly with a new found fondness for saw filling. The third reason was the material used in the manufacture of there rasps, Stainless should hold up better than carbon steel with my working environment. And the tube It comes in is such a great Idea. Check them out, Ill need a few more as soon as money allows.
