I did a little googling this morning and found the slitting file. Grobet has some for sale in the 6” size, but I didn’t find any larger ones like the 14” one I have. The description indicates that a slitting file is used for cutting slots. It also indicates that one half of the file is double cut and the other half is single cut. I will have to check mine out now.

I have not been able to find anything on the shoe maker’s rasp, except that Picasso occasionally used them in making some of his linocuts.
