Auriou Chris Pye Carving Tools


Handmade by Auriou Toolworks at Forge de Saint Juery, France

Auriou recently began making carving tools again, and worked with master carver, Chris Pye, to develop a basic set to start. Currently there are 11 carving tools available with more coming in the future.

These tools are forged the traditional way: by hammering a steel blank to length before profiling. This process develops the best gain structure for taking and holding a fine edge. This also allows the tool to be thinner and lighter but still strong - so the tools are easy to handle.
