Founded in the 1920s, Liogier combines traditional handcrafting skills with modern manufacturing materials to produce rasps of exceptional quality and durability.

Essentially a flat, safe-edged file with straight milled teeth, this side float is used by plane makers for flattening and smoothing the sidewalls of the throats on wooden side-escapement and bench planes. It can also be used for trimming joinery tenons to an exact fit.

The 190mm long (about 7 1/2") steel blade tapers from 22mm (about 7/8") at the base to a narrow tip. Heat-treated to retain its sharpness through long use, it has hand-sharpened teeth that cut aggressively yet leave a smooth surface, and can be resharpened with a small saw file as needed. It cuts on the push stroke and is affixed to a stained beechwood handle with a brass ferrule.

Made in France.
