Product Description

These short fishtail gouges form part of the Chris Pye Short Fishtails range. To see other tools from this range please follow this link.

These tools were designed by master carver Chris Pye and hand forged in the traditional way by Auriou Toolworks at Forge-de-Saint-Juery in France. 

Short fishtail just means the end is splayed rather than with a straight gouge (consistent profile along the body) or allongee (splay starts from the shoulder of the carving tool to the cutting edge). Lightweight and with beautifully forged short fishtail shapes these 7 gouges, designed by Chris Pye, are a lovely example of how hand forged tools, made in a traditional manner possess a delicacy that few manufacturers can match.

Auriou woodcarving tools have been among Chris Pye's favourite tools since he began carving. Uniquely their blades are forged by beating out a blank of steel to length before hammering the cross-section profile. This creates a very resilient grain structure in the metal which, when hardened to Rockwell 58C, underpins their great edge-holding properties.

All tools have octagonal ash handles with brass ferrules.
