Cabinet maker rasps- worth the money?

I've started using rasps to rough out my handles lately and am enjoying the control they give. The ones I'm using are pretty coarse (and cheap). I find myself thinking about dropping $90+ on a single hand stitched cabinet maker pattern rasp. Am I crazy, or are they worth the money? Anyone with experience care to educate me?

That's all I use. The brand is Iwasaki. I really like the control and the finish that I accomplish. The six inch size is the ones I use, and I think they cost me about $30.00 each. I got them from woodcraft. They are terrific.

Thanks Bruce, I’ll check those out.
