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)

Dragon Rasp Heaven

By Gilmore Guitars Inc. from Red Deer, Alberta

I just carved 2 necks with my new dragon rasps. Spectacular tools. My time was reduced significantly and the contours and lines I achieved were so much more clean.

Dragon teeth

Any self-respecting dragon has lots of sharp teeth and this one does, too! This is not a file from your local warehouse store. THIS one does the job! You DO get what you pay for! Yah. babe!

Effective tools!

I like the small double radius rasps a lot! Thanks for a great tool!

Perfect and fun to use

This is my first guitar build, and really one of my first woodworking projects. I quickly found I loved carving the neck. I used the small size coarse and the double radius fine, which worked great. A lot of elbow grease and sanding, and the neck is coming along great. These rasps cut well and were pretty easy to use. Made the neck carving process very enjoyable. Best part of the build.

Pride of Ownership

Never thought that I could take pride in a utilitarian item such as a rasp, but the rasps I received changed my mind. These are excellent, well-made tools that perform very well. thanks

Can't speak for the large ones but the small ones work excelent!!! Not too agressive. Just the perfect balance of material removal with minimal effort. Must buy for neck shaping.

The best

This is the best rasp I ever used!!!!! Excellent!!!!

Ideal size for smaller instruments such as mandolin. Hand struck means better control and no chatter.

Double Radius Rasps - Great!

By JRC from Manheim,PA

I was a bit skeptical since I treated myself to Auriou flat combination rasps a year ago. Auriou rasps are excellent. I had no idea what a fine hand-made rasp could be like. They're nothing like the hardware store rasps I have. While the fit and finish of the Dragon rasps are not as fine as the Auriou, they are five-star worthy based on the price and usability. They cut very nicely and the two radii on each make them very useful in finessing braces and other work. Get Aurious if you can afford them, but you won't regret buying the Dragons.
