I have a #49 Nicholson rasp a few years old, made in Brazil. It works fine.I recently bought another for a spare thinking it might be sharper being new.Also made in Brazil. The teeth don't go out to the edge and the edge don't cut either. When I run my thumb against the grain the new one is almost smooth feeling compared to my old one.If you don't know how it should perform I don't know how to advise. I think some are good and some are bad.

Truly a "RASP" as a wood rasp should be!

I'm in Gunsmithing school and use a few different starter rasp such as a 'Farrier Horse Hoof rasp'. When getting to the shorter and tighter areas requires the No. 49 for perfect use.

I bought this rasp as a gift for my husband after he took a longbow making class. You had the best price online for the Nicholson #50 rasp that he wanted and he has already started making a second bow. Thanks so much for a great product!

This is the cadillac of rasps

I've been just getting by with a generic rasp that was made in china. It was so slow that I'd switch to using sandpaper before going back to that cheap rasp.Finally bit the bullet and got the nicholson rasp after seeing videos of it being used and the apparent ease of wood removal.Gets rid of excess wood fast and is a fine enough cut that you won't spend as much time sanding gouges out of the wood.My favorite woodworking tool now!

Bought 2, one good, one not

Bought 2 of these. One was great. The other looked like a factory second. The edges on that rasp were wavy and not cut correctly. I cannot use the edges of that rasp for anything. The flat and round faces were ok. Due to restocking fee and return postage I just decided to keep it. Price was cheaper than anywhere else by a good margin.Overall if you get a good one it is an excellent rasp.

a fine cutting tool

I purchased #49 and #50 to use on my next flintlock project. The files remove wood very quickly and are easy to control.
