Hand made in France, premium-quality Auriou rasps are more expensive than others, but the skill used in forging the blades and hand cutting (or stitching) the teeth ensures a superior result. The densely patterned teeth leave no scratch pattern, and the blades have tapered tips for a tight stroke to concentrate the cut over a small area.
This rasp is ideal for shaping the crest rail or seat of a chair or working any large concave surface. 10" overall with coarse grain-7 teeth for rapid stock removal. Each end is half-round in section and stitched only on the convex side.
