Dragon Hand-cut Rasp

About This Item

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)

Excellent finish

Used on mahogany ukulele neck. I used it following a Nicholson 49. Cuts fast and smooth, and leaves surface ready for 120 sandpaper. Happy with the smaller size.

Cut maple like if it was mahogany

Time and effort saver, I wish I would have known theme years ago! Another good point is it's very light weight I hope it will be sharp for long years, but as they are not so expensive, I could replace them more often if necessary.

Great tool for knifemaking too!

By

Verified Buyer


I'm not a luthier though I have worked on several guitars with good results in the past. I make custom knives and when I saw these rasps, I realized that I could shorten the time I spend on shaping the stabilized wood and thermal plastics I use on the handles. I pre-shape them on my knife grinder and then do all the final shaping with standard half round files. The small, fine dragon rasp blew me away with it's aggressive ability and in no time I was ready for sanding. Thanks for always coming up with great tools, many of which I have ordered and transferred their use to my custom knifemaking.

Saves time and effort.

This tool removes wood faster than even my roughest rasp and it leaves a much smoother finish which saves time smoothing out the neck. I'm really happy with it.

Very good at removing material

By

So I've tried the more expensive rasps (gramercy) and these dragon cut rasps remove more material and save time. Although the more expensive rasps leave a cleaner surface the difference is marginal. Plus most of the time I don't leave the rasped surface as is so I would recommend these dragon cut rasps over others I have tried. Maybe advertise them in other areas instead of only guitar making

Agressive and controllable -- just right for the rough work on maple.

Fine small Dragon hand-cut rasp

By

Verified Buyer


This is finer cut than I expected from the photos, but no matter. It cuts as effectively as rasps with much bigger teeth. It works very well.

Dragon rasps

I purchased these amazing dragon rasps a few years ago and they are my go to for shaping necks and body contours. I have jigs and machines that can use a router to shape a neck but honestly I prefer these rasps they are the best on the market anywhere in my opinion. One of my all time favorite tools could not build without them.

The Dragon Rasp works great, removes stock quickly and and leaves a easy to work with finish when done moved right on to sanding.
