The Shinto Saw-Rasp Planer is a special 10” flat rasp made from ten high quality hardened steel teeth saw blades held together by rivets. The saw has an offset handle for more control & blade is double-sided which enables one to change the coarse & fine sides whenever needed. The teeth are specially designed to help prevent clogging. The saw rasp can be easily cleaned whenever the need arises as well. While the tool may seem odd to someone more used to traditional rasps, it works so well it will soon be one of your favorite tools! Great for fast stock removal on wood, plastics, fiberglass, & even soft metals. Suitable for any shaping task from rough to fine work. See here for the replacement blade. Made in Japan.
