Traditional rasp of Japanese shoemakers. Like its European counterpart, this rasp has no sleeve, being pricked on its two extremities (puncturing n ° 11 on one, n ° 12 on the other), and its two faces. It is wider (25mm) and finer (2mm); One face is flat while the other is slightly convex. Length: 200mm
These tools designed to be mounted on mandrel drills or hoses are used for roughing sculptures and reliefs. Field diameter: 10 mm These rasps are also used in podiatry for heel thinning, orthopedic insoles or leather card (depilated prior to joining).
At the request of an American boot maker, I made this specific rasp.Its particular shape allows this hand-stitched rasp to be a very suitable tool for the work of bootmakers.There are teeth on one side which allows to work on the sole without damaging the leather of the shoe. In the same way the chamfer allows to work in depth.
