Auriou Woodcarving Chisels
AURIOU TOOLWORKS at FORGE de SAINT JUERY
Auriou has a deserved reputation for making fine hand tools for the precise shaping of wood, stone & plaster.
Auriou's origins date back to 1856 but was interupted by closure in 2007. 2 hand tool enthusiasts re-started Auriou in 2008 with the new name of Forge de Saint Juery. 4th generation rasp maker Michel Auriou is the hands on manager of their forge.
Auriou are customer led, not price led. They know their tools work for the purpose for which they are intended and they have a very long list of satisfied customers.
Auriou do not outsource the forging of blanks, grinding, heat treatment or stitching. Their skilled workforce have the necessary skills to make the fine tools that carry the Auriou name. The Auriou quality, performance and brand is respected worldwide. All Auriou tools are made at Forge de Saint Juery, home of Auriou Toolworks.
They work from the same Auriou forge at the same premises since 1967 in the little town of Saint Juery (hence the name of our forge). You are welcome to visit them.
They believe they are the only maker of hand made rasps and rifflers who do all the traditional processes "in house" at our forge. We do not sub-contact any part of the rasp and riffler making process. This allows them to keep a very careful eye on quality control.
They are recognised for making the finest hand stitched rasps and rifflers in the world and they are very proud of this achievment.
