Auriou 7 Pce Woodcarving Chisel Set
Handmade by Auriou Toolworks at Forge de Saint Juery, France
Auriou woodcarving tools have been designed by master carver and teacher, Chris Pye. They are his favourite tools since he began carving. Uniquely their blades are forged by beating out a blank of steel to length before hammering the cross-section profile. This creates a very resilient grain structure in the metal which, when hardened to Rockwell 58C, underpins their great edge-holding properties.
Chris has enjoyed working with Auriou on a re-design of their woodcarving tools. The new gouges have the older, 'allongee' 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.
They have slender octagonal ash handles with polished brass tapered ferules.
The basic set of 7 tools, which for now is sold as a set, rather than individual tools consists of:
# 3 x 8mm (5/16in.)
# 3 x 14mm (1/2in.)
# 6 x 8mm (5/16in.)
# 6 x 14mm (1/2in.)
# 9 x 8mm (5/16in.)
# 9 x 14mm (1/2in.)
60 deg. V tool x 10mm (3/8in.)
The set gives you many carving choices: deep gouges for shaping, medium for modelling, flat gouges for smoothing surfaces, and the ever-useful V tool; and with these tools you'll have the means of carving a wide range of subjects.
