If you get lost in the depths of our range designed for wood lovers, know that the most frequently used rasps to start are:the Cabinet Makers rasp, 10’’ grain # 9, or 8’’ grain # 11,t he Rat Tail rasp, 8’’ grain # 12.
At the request of the luthiers, we realize this rasp, the sting of which, unlike the conventional rasps, is oriented not in the direction of the length, but in the width, thus being used as a plane of carpenter. Used in particular to put round the back of the sleeves of musical instruments (cello, guitar, ...). Both ends are equipped with handles.
By combining the qualities of a rasp and a planer, the "bastard" is equipped with a blade of 350mm, pricked with teeth n ° 3. It is the preliminary rasp par excellence, used to remove the largest amount of wood in the shortest possible time. Its name is a nod to the "bastard cut" appellation used for limes to the roughest size.
