The Nicholson farrier rasp file is 14" long and has a rectangular
shape with American pattern rasp-cut teeth on one side for
aggressive material removal and coarse (also called bastard)
grade double-cut American pattern teeth on the other side for
rapid removal of material with a rough finish. The rasp's density
of six teeth per row provides a smoother finish than horse rasps
with five teeth per row. The file has single-cut teeth on the
edges for smoothing. A handle is forged on the end of the file,
with cushion grip on the handle and tip for comfort.
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.
