Note: Auriou tools are made by a 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, and we understand quality takes time. The availability of Auriou tools can fluctuate, but we think you'll find them worth the wait.
