That handle did turn out well. Big farrier's rasps are ugly things to hang onto, gloves or not.
Sometimes, a farrier's rasp is the right thing to use for shaping contours on a big wood carving.
I cut a skinny scrub weed tree in the ditch of a logging road. Took the bark off with a draw knife.
Cut into sections, makes crude but workable file and rasp handles.
Local farrier is also a pretty competent smith.
Nice to know that I can go to you guys (smiths and farriers) and get stuff made.
