What is a Hand Stiched Rasp and What are the benefits?

The goal is to obtain a rasp with thousands of teeth, hand-stitched one by one using home-made hammers and punches, providing a surface that will bite into wood, stone, resin, plastics, etc. that will bring comfort in the use and provide an incomparable surface finish. By having a seemingly random alignment or placement of teeth makes leaving lines, furrows or gouges in the worked surface 099almost impossible.

Care and Cleaning: To clean use a natural fiber brush & Camellia oil or WD40. Keep files and Rasps separated from each other and other tools to prevent damage to the teeth.
