Why is the metal so thin? These are easy to break!
The current thickness allows us to etch and form a very sharp tooth economically. Just remember to use a light touch and let the sharpness of the tool do the cutting for you.
Where are these tools made?
The blades are made in Russellville, Arkansas. The tools are molded and assembled at our plant in Mexico.
Who produced the video shown on this page?

Use and Care
Use on wood, plastic, sheetrock, rubber, and similar materials.
Fine tooth pattern designed for intricate, delicate cuts.
Protect your Microplane® Shaping Rasps by applying light pressure to the end and back of the tool while using. This will help prevent breaking the tool and provide more stability and control to your cuts .
