These premium-quality shaping tools have been hand made in France by a small family-owned company since 1856. They are more expensive than others, but the care taken in shaping and polishing the blank before the teeth are raised and hardened ensures a superior result.

Skilled hand cutting (or "stitching") produces densely patterned, randomly spaced teeth of a regular height, resulting in a tool that cuts efficiently yet leaves no scratch pattern. The blades are stitched to the very edge, allowing you to work to an adjacent surface, and their tapered tips permit a tight stroke to concentrate the cut over a small area. They are graded according to the "grain" of their teeth; grain 6 is coarse and for major stock removal, while grain 15 is extra fine, ideal for delicate work.

All cabinetmaker’s, modeller’s, and round rasps have comfortable walnut handles. Excellent tools, produced with care and attention to detail.
