    I was at the hardware store couple days ago and my eye caught Black & Decker's saw rasp... Looks somewhat like Shinto, but has narrow blade and the toothed grid isn't as dense.

    As a Shinto rasp fan I had to buy this for a test.
    Shinto costs about four times more, let's see if it's also four times better. :hmm:

    Very interested in the results actually. I've been checking out the Shinto for a while now...

    I cannot imagine for a moment that you would regret getting one. They are really wonderful tools and really not at all expensive. :yesway:

    I have a shinto. Hate it. I can't get it to work the way I want it to work. It binds and sticks constantly.

    Let me just share this with you ...
    look at these shavings you can do with an IWASAKI carving file!
    It really ain't an usual rasp.

    Really? Wow...my experience is exactly the opposite. Maybe it's different on different woods, but I love it on mahogany and maple.

    The horse rasp you posted looks wonderful, however. :yesway:
