Tungsten Carbide Rasp


YD Forums

Recommended Posts

I have a fantastic wood rasp that I inherited from my grandfather some 40 years ago. It is made from a flat piece of steel with abrasive bonded to it. Considering how long it has remained sharp, I'm guessing that the abrasive is tungsten carbide or something similar.

 

Does anyone know where to buy such a rasp?

 

Thanks.

It seems you are right and it is a fine grit Tungsten Carbide file. 

These are made mostly for tiles as much as I know, Marshalltown makes a nice one compared to the ones other brands make. Product code is MTFTS
