I know it's not knives being made here but I enjoyed seeing the techniques used.

I always wondered how they made those little teeth. I'm sure there is a more automated way to do this but this is cooler.

I am still wondering how the guys in Brazil make those Nicholson cabinetmakers/cobblers rasps with the very pointy random teeth. I did notice that these guys appeared to be using high temp salt for HT.

Auriou rasps are the best you can buy IMHO. If you order them from Lie-Nielsen, they come with L-N's beautiful maple handles.

That was so badass. Especially Don Bluth at 5:55.

How long until we see damascus rasps? It seems that if it can be forged, it can also forged of damascus... and rehandled with exhibition grade burl.

Absolutely amazing! I would have never guessed that so much manual labor is still being done to make tools like this. Thanks for posting this Colin.
