Auriou Stonecarving Tools

Auriou Stonecarving Tools

Auriou have been making stone carving chisels for many decades and are well known in France for the quality of their tools. Previously distributed in the UK by Avery Knight & Bowler in Bath. These firesharp tools are for use of softer stones and marble. The body of each tool is either is a straight octagonal (Standard Range) or a barrel shape (Traditional Range). The barrel shaped tools are unique to Auriou and are more comfortable to use over long periods of time. All these tools are free forged at Forge de Saint Juery, home of Auriou Toolworks in South West France.

Auriou's reputation for quality and precision is supported by the choice of the finest steel, the special heat treatment and the cut of the teeth. Each tool is formed, one at a time, by hand.
