This tool is made from ten individual saw blades joined together in a diamond pattern, forming a 1 1/4" wide by 10" long rasp.
The reversible blade is cut 10 tpi on one side for coarse cutting and 24 tpi on the other for fine work. The open structure of the blade permits dust clearance and resists clogging, and the slender tip can be used in corners. The wooden rear handle (offset for knuckle clearance) and front knob allow a comfortable two-handed grip for excellent control. Although it can aggressively remove material, the rasp leaves a surprisingly smooth surface. Replacement blades are available separately.
Overall length 15". Made in Japan.
