Product Description

Auriou rasps are made by hand at the Forge de Saint Ju‚ry in Saint Juery a small town close to the beautiful city of Albi 80 miles north east of Toulouse in Southwest France. Saint Juery once housed over 3000 rasp and file makers. Now there is just the Auriou Toolworks at Forge de Saint Juery.

The factory has a small team of highly skilled toolmakers recognized for making the finest hand stitched rasps in the world.

As a general rule the rasp length (excluding handle) should be 3-4 times longer than the width of the work you are working on. So for a chunky section (e.g. shaping the top of a table leg, or initial shaping of a decoy duck or gun stock) don't be afraid to go long i.e. 12 in. and chose an aggressive cut (4 or 6).

Tip: A final word on care and cleaning: Don't use a wire brush, use a natural fiber brush. Camellia oil or WD40, keep separate from other tools to prevent damage to the teeth.
