    Welcome to the family Noel! That's quite a process to making a rasp.

    Before you criticize someone, you should walk a mile in their shoes. That way, when you criticize them, you're a mile away and you have their shoes.

    Fascinating and painstaking process. Amazing variety also. Those displayed at end were appropriate with, and as, works of art.

    Wow ......what brand name are they sold under?

    Welcome to the family. Maybe you can educate me on the rasp in general. How to use efficiently, how to clean, how to keep it sharp. How to choose the right one for the job.
    Thanks for showing us the video.

    Hello Rob,

    That's a lot of questions at once ! Answering properly to all of them would take quite some pages, but to make it short :
    - the brand name is simply Liogier
    - to clean a rasp, use simply a hard brush, but never acids as many people recommend
    - to keep it sharp : be carefull when you store it, just like you would do with any blades (the teeth on a rasp are as sharp as blades, so you can see a raps like many (between 2,000 and 10,000 depending on the model) blades) make sure it cannot be hurted by other tools.
    - how to choose the right one : if it is your first Liogier rasp, pick out a Cabinet Markers 10'', grain #9 since it is a very multipurpose tool. If you have a specific task in mind, let me know and I'll try to advise you the best I can.

    No, I don't think so since I have no dealer in North-America. Sorry.
