Designed by master carver Chris Pye and handmade by Auriou's team of less than a dozen people at the Forge de Saint Juery in France.
These tools are forged the traditional way — by hammering a steel blank to length before profiling. This allows for a resilient gain structure which takes and holds a fine edge, so the tools can be thinner, lighter, and easier to handle. These are quality tools for precise work.
