A farrier’s rasp is the second most important bow-building tool after the draw knife. Bellota Rasps are the Nicholson of the farrier’s rasps. Can’t be beat as one of the fastest, easiest ways to shape your bow stave, after the use of a drawknife. These files are scary sharp! Maximum cut on one side, smooth on the other. Make sure to pickup one of the handles to protect your hand from the tang while working.
