Designed by master carver Chris Pye and handmade by Auriou Toolworks at Forge de Saint Juery, France.
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.
