Note: Auriou tools are made by a team of less than a dozen people at the 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 their Rasps of which "stitching" is just one. These are quality tools for precise shaping, and we understand quality takes time. The availability of Auriou tools can fluctuate, but we think you'll find these tools worth the wait. Please contact our sales office for more information or help placing an order.
Stitched with 7 grain on one half and 9 grain on the other, flat profile on one side and convex on the other, for a total of four different shaping combinations. Use the finer stitching across the grain and the coarser stitching with grain, when speed and close dexterity are needed. Useful for stickmakers and knife handle makers.
