description

The shoe rasp is a rectangular rasp (approx. 2 cm wide; 20 cm long) without a handle, the two halves of which grate in opposite directions.

The shoemaker uses this rasp to smooth and finish the soles, sole edges and heels. The short sides are usually rounded; sometimes one short side is straight. There are also models with one side grooved as a file.

See also peg rasp.

Can be distinguished from the horse rasp. [MOT]
