Any kitchen store would carry them. You can also order them online. They originated are a wood working tool (called a wood rasp) so you can even get them in hardware stores.

I would stick with a food grade stainless steel version. The ones made for wood are carbon steel and would eventually rust. Originally called a Surform.

Sometimes that's not small enough and it goes too deep, catching the pith. It's amazing how fresher the taste is without that bitter pith
