    Rat tail rasp

    Posted by Mike on 25th Nov 2021

    I learnt years ago that in buying tools you always look for quality - not price. These rasps and rifflers are outstanding examples of this. I own four versions - the oldest being over 10 years old - and without exception, I still get that feeling of admiration and pleasure in their craftsmanship each time I pick them up. The handmade faces and perfectly proportioned handles make these tools unique! Congratulations Forge-de-Saint-Juery, for your amazing work!! Mike.

    Very aggressive for its size

    Rasp goes from a nice point to thicker body. Gives the option to fit in many smaller hollows and still remove material quickly but still leaving a nice finish. High quality as usual.
