Compact Drywall Shaver. The original drywall rasp was a scrap of metal lath wrapped around a 2x4. Tajima's Combination Drywall Rasp looks like a major improvement. It has a sleek profile that should fit easily in a tool pouch, and chrome-plated teeth that cut in both directions, resist clogging, and stay sharp, says the maker. The cutting surface has separate rows of coarse and fine teeth — the coarse ones are recessed so that the rasp doesn't slip off the edge of the drywall. The list price is $16.
