Instead of raised teeth, the Shinto Saw Rasp uses high-quality saw blades. This open-web saw tooth design eliminates clogging, and its up-to-the-edge teeth allow you to get into corners where your normal rasp won’t go.
Shinto Saw Rasps are offered in two different styles: the first looks like a normal rasp with the saw rasp head, and the plane style has a two-handed offset handle and a replaceable blade. Both styles have a coarse side with 11 teeth per inch for rapid material removal and a fine side with 25 teeth per inch for finishing.
The rasps can be used on wood, plastics, fiberglass, and soft metals. Prices for the straight-handled saw rasp start at $20, and prices for the plane style handle saw rasp start at $25. A replacement blade for the plane style rasp saw runs about $20.
