rasps come in many shapes and sizes
some have two sizes of teeth others have four


* As far as I know but I would be happy to find out.

    Rasps can be sharpened by sending them out to a file sharpening company or at home using an acid bath. Citric acid from the grocery store will do it albeit slowly. Other acids work faster and require closer monitoring.
