Note: Auriou Tools are handmade made by a team of less than a dozen people at Forge de Saint Juery in France. Each Rasp is carefully stitched to the tip by hand—the finer rasps will take a highly skilled stitcher as much as 90 minutes to complete. There are over 30 separate operations in making Auriou Rasps of which "stitching" is just one.
Our supply of Auriou tools—which are the best of their kind—fluctuates. They are often out of stock, sometimes for extended periods, and we do not have reliable delivery information. We will put them on the website as they are available, and if you do not see what you are looking for please check back again.
We believe these tools are worth the wait, and hope you will too.
This is the "hog" that reduces your band saw blank to more closely resemble to the shape you want (think cabriole leg, guitar neck, gun stock, decoy duck blanks etc). Flat and half round tapered cross section, grain 3. The rasp (excluding the handle) is 12" (300mm) long. Available in left or right handed models.
