Joel OF Posted December 16, 2017 Share Posted December 16, 2017 Having watched a small variety of YouTube videos by amateurs & pros alike, I'm a little confused why no one grinds off the teeth from on farrier's rasps before forging them into knives etc. As they're not forging at a welding temperature, surely the raised teeth are just getting flattened down, potentially forming cold shuts. I would have thought this is most likely on the narrow edges rather than the wide faces. I assume they're not grinding off the teeth because they want the pretty patterns of the teeth folded down, but surely that's at the expense of a homongenous tool? Or am I just overthinking it?...
