Allongee Gouge, Sweep 3-20mm



Auriou Allongee Gouges

"Allongee" refers to the style of blade that splays from the shoulder: they are lighter to use, the corners are more available for cutting, and their thin walls are of a uniform thickness. Auriou Gouges are forged by hammering out a steel blank to length before profiling the cross section. This helps creates a resilient grain structure in the metal which, when hardened to Rockwell 58C, underpins their great edge-holding properties. These gouges are good examples of how hand forged tools, made in a traditional manner, possess a delicacy that is hard to match.
