Needle Rasps

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.


1/2 round, flat, rat tail and knife shaped needle rasps, very fine grain (14) for detailing work. Approximately 7-1/4" long with a 2-3/4" blade, these are well suited for making models or musical instruments and shaping keyholes or pierced carvings - anywhere a larger tool would be awkward or too aggressive.
