Fast working, super-smooth cut.
Unequaled for neck shaping and contouring.

Dragon handcrafted steel rasps have become our first choice for quickly shaping instrument necks, solidbody guitar contours, custom jigs and clamping cauls.

Double-cut rasp has two different radii for quickly shaping a neck heel or the base of a peghead.

Dragon rasp teeth are individually hand-struck on both sides of each file, leaving a slightly random pattern that a machine-made rasp simply can't equal. This reduces chattering and "wandering," giving a smooth but aggressive cut.

Dragon rasps have the right shapes for contouring a variety of neck sizes.

Use the coarse rasp to quickly shape:
• Solidbody contours
• Necks and bridges
• Jigs and cauls

Follow with the fine rasp for:
• Final shaping
• Smoothing
• Softening corners

Large 10" long x 1-5/8" wide   (254mm x 41.28mm)
Small 6" long x 1-3/16" wide (152mm x 30.16mm)
Double-radius 7" long x 7/8" wide (178mm x 22.22mm)

Expensive, but...

...you can mess around with cheaper tools and never get the same quality of result. Pretty much the only tools I need for final neck carving. The coarse one removes huge amounts of wood really quickly and the fine ones make detailed work a pleasure.

I've been using some cheep rasps I got for like $10 at a local hardware store for years now. After shredding through this last maple guitar neck worse than normal I decided it was time to buy a new rasp and reluctantly put out the money for the 2 large dragon rasps. I spent a lot of time thinking "why spend $50 on a rasp I can get for $10 at home depot". Well now I know. The course cut removes wood faster and leaves a smoother finish than those cheep rasps you can pick up anywhere. The smooth cut left a surface smoother than my second cut files! I'll be buying the dual radius rasps soon. Awesome product, well worth the money.

Needed This for Years!

For decades I've been looking for a smooth cut rasp that was smoother than the ordinary; something that cut more aggressively than a file, but less aggressively than my smoothest rasps. Quality sandpaper worked, but I prefer shaping with hand tools, not 60 grit abrasive. This Dragon hand-cut rasp is it! Now that I've got it, I'd feel lost without it. Great tool for those of us who do a lot sculpting and shaping.

I've used these files for the past two years to shape the necks when I build my ukuleles. They are the greatest! Cuts fast and clean. Saves time, makes work easy.
