Hand Rasps

Hand Rasps

Quality handmade craftsmanship is found in every Kutzall tool. From custom tools to the humble hand rasp, if it bears the Kutzall name, it's built to work better and last longer.

Kutzall Hand Rasps are engineered to be the ultimate man-powered, hand-shaping instrument. These unique tools strike a fascinating balance between the shaping and smoothing function of a conventional file and the aggressive stock removal of a wood rasp. In addition, their construction makes them effective on materials like composites and soft stone, on which conventional steel-toothed files and rasps may work poorly, or provide only a short working life.

Each rasp is made with a rugged and long-lasting tungsten-carbide coating, offered in both Kutzall Original or Kutzall Grit versions. These options provide you with the choice of extremely long lasting file/ rasps which are optimized for either the most effortless material removal, or a balance of material removal and durability on very punishing applications. Kutzall Rasps will stay sharp, project after project, and do things that other rasps just can’t do.

"I have had the pleasure of using the new line of Kutzall rasps and I find them to be exquisite tools that remove wood at a brisk pace while affording very good control of the cut, which means you end up with the shape you intended! When I need to remove wood and I can't get to it with my right angle grinder and a Kutzall blade I reach for these little beauties! Try them and you will end up with a set in your tool box!"
