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)

Great Rasps

By

Verified Buyer


I just got these, cleaned them and put them to use immediately. They are quick and do an amazing job of removing material. But, they are easily controllable so you get the shape you want.

Now I understand what I’ve been missing!

By

Verified Buyer


I’ve been a professional woodworker for just over 50 years. Have had the privilege of knowing many outstanding artisans who did much of their finest detailing with rasps & files, & I couldn’t imagine how.

Now that I’ve tried Dragon Rasps, I get it!

Pricey? Yes they are. Over priced? Emphatically Not!

If you are, or aspire to be a Luthier, boatbuilder, sculptor, or to experience the pleasure of true hands-on woodwork, get the entire set of Dragon Rasps.

One of the best tool I ever bought

I have had this tool for a couple years. Many Mandolins and a couple guitars with it. Carving a neck, no problem. Do not understand anyone not loving this tool.

Must Have!

Started building guitars from my teacher (Dennis Hill) and so far I’ve only really needed two tools. This and a dozuki hand saw. This is a great rasp. Curved side is the heels worst nightmare lol. Highly recommend!

Dragon file Rocks!

By

Verified Buyer


Seriously, this is the best file for fine shaping. I use a heavier rasp or a spokeshave for the rough cuts, but this file does the finish work. some 220 after that and your pretty much done. I only have the rough cut dragon file. I have the fine one at work, but this one does the bulk of the work.

Was hoping this would cut more aggressively

By

Verified Buyer


I bought this hoping to use it to quickly shape necks but the cut is far too shallow. I ordered the coarse version and thought maybe I got the wrong one because the teeth looked so tiny but StewMac confirmed I had the correct one. It cuts smoothly with no chatter but it's definitely not a fast cutter. I like the tapered shape for getting into tighter areas but I don't actually have much use for it because it's just not aggressive enough. If you're looking for an agressive cutter, this isn't it.
