Product Description

The Nicholson pattern maker's cabinet rasp file has a half-round shape with medium American pattern rasp-cut teeth for aggressive removal of wood or soft materials in holes, curves, and corners in cabinet making. The file tapers toward the point in width to ease access into holes and grooves. The rasp's density of six or more rows of teeth per inch provides a smoother finish than regular cabinet rasps. It has medium, single-cut American pattern teeth on the edges for smoothing with a medium-smooth finish. The tang can be used with an optional handle for secure gripping (sold separately).

Hand files are used to remove material and smooth and shape workpieces. They have forward-facing cutting teeth and cut when pushed over either a stationary or rotating workpiece. Single-cut teeth are single rows cut diagonally across the width of the file. Double-cut teeth have two sets of rows cut in opposite directions. American pattern files have three coarseness grades. Coarse, also known as bastard cut, is suitable for efficient, heavy material removal where finish is not a concern. Medium, also known as second cut, offers average material removal and finish quality. Fine, also known as smooth cut, provides the smoothest finish. Swiss pattern files have eight coarseness grades, from 00 (coarse), 0 (medium), and 1 to 6 (fine to finest), offering a smoother finish than equivalent American pattern files. For Swiss pattern files the length of the tool is the length of the blade, not counting the tang, which is the pointed end fitted for a handle; for American pattern files the length of the tool is its entire length, including the tang.

Nicholson manufactures hand tools and power tool accessories. The company is headquartered in Sparks, MD.

These are great rasps and are the standard in woodworking for rasps. Many classes, books and forums recommend these rasps. Their quality has slipped some in recent years, as the manufacturing has changed countries from US & Switzerland, to Mexico and Brazil. They aren't as good, in my opinion, as say, an Ariou, handmade in France. But that's comparing two very different price points. Still, I would like to have seen the quality that they used to be known for not too many years ago. It's a shame that more and more companies are sending their manufacturing overseas where corner cutting inevitably happens. Still, it isn't a bad rasp, and will suit most people. Amazon's prices are also excellent, beating all the woodworking catalogs that I get.

In short, recommended, but if you are used to the quality of older Nicholson rasps and files, you will be slightly disappointed.

For the price, I've found this to be a good rasp. It isn't in hand right now so I can't say where my particular one was manufactured but it does cut smoothly and I haven't found it to be problematic. My best recollection is mine was from stock manufactured in Mexico.

Compared to hand-stitched rasp finishes, this will be more rough but at approximately 1/3 the expense I'm OK with that.

This rasp was purchased to be used with hardwoods and works well for that purpose. The rasp leaves rough surface which is what I expect when removing a lot of material.

This is the tool I reach for when I just need to tune something a bit. Take the edge off, put it back on, tweak it a bit, this tool does it all.
