Auriou's high quality, hand-forged tools are well known to discerning woodworkers, Famous for their hand stitched rasps and rifflers Auriou are using their small team of highly skilled artisans to produce a small range of tools to balance their portfolio of tools. Launched in autumn 2010 this large, straight-blade draw knife is sure to become a favourite in green woodworking circles.
Turned 5" French walnut handles with brass ferrules are spaced 13½" apart. There is a slight splay to the handles (about 8 degrees) which makes the action of drawing the knife toward you more comfortable (of course there are dozens of views on this but based on feedback received on their prototypes and the study of old designs Auriou decided this was the best compromise). The draw knife comes honed and ready for use. Weight 0.5 kgs (1.2 lbs).
Hand forged at Forge de Saint Juery, France, home of Auriou Toolworks.
