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)

One beast of a file

These files are perfect for shaping a neck. You can get aggressive with it and really take off some wood or with a more delicate touch start roughing in the profile. I would recommend to anyone.

Get One

I was dubious too, just like the first review, but this is a really good tool - far better than I've ever bought from a hardware store. Mine is the coarse one, but I think a fine one of these and a coarse 10" one would be a very handy combination.

goes through maple like butter

This rasp is REALLY good. I have been using it and its little brother for making handles for dovetail saws. I am glad I bought this one. Worth every penny!

Great rasp!

Just the right rasp for those tight places. Great quality HAND STITCHED rasp without the over-inflated price. Highly recommended.

Great addition to my arsenal

The "small-coarse" rasp is in reality slightly finer than the "large-coarse" rasp. I can't imagine needing a finer rasp for neck work. These tools are perfect now, I hope they last years and years.

Dragons rock!

I love these new Dragon rasps. I bought the large set and they are so easy to use, even without a handle. The allow shaping and fine finishing and they feel very "natural" in my hands. I highly recommend these rasps!

a fine tool...

I have just used these Dragon rasps to carve a mahogany neck and I have to say they are the best I've ever used.

Awesome Rasps. Very glad I came across and acquired these for my workshop. Saw plenty rasps at the local hardware store and reviewed many on the net. But knowing I can trust the reviews on Stewmac I thought "what have I got to lose?" Now I need to figure out the easiest method to attach a comfy handle to the rasp or it'll be my fingers if I get too carried away! These rasps are fantastic on my mahogany necks. The course rasp rips through the wood easily without needing any force and the fine rasp smooths the course rasp's finish. I finish off the shaping process with the highly technologically advanced eraser wrapped in adhesive sandpaper and the job is done in no time at all!
