OK... We can hear your frustration. Despite assurances from the forge manager that these tools would have been made in good quantities by MARCH 2019. We are now advised that we will not get full stock of all Chris Pye letter carving tools until September/October 2019... our apologies.


Master Carver Chris Pye was extremely pleased with his Auriou lettercarving tools when they were made more readily available!.

It is nevertheless still true that once in a while Auriou's blacksmiths at Forge de Saint Juery still create beautiful carving tools that are light and easy to work with.

These tools are fitted with attractive octagonal ash handles with tapered brass ferules 

There are now 14 tools in Chris Pye's range which is based on a specific font and size (see below).

  1. Right tool for the right job 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 4th Sep 2020

    It is always satisfying to have exactly the right tool for the craft. The lettering tools are no more and no less than what is required for letter carving.

    They do not constrain the skill of the user and are comfortable to use.

    They are well made and are likely to last a lifetime.

    Great product!

  2. Excellent tools for lettering or similar uses by Chris Pye 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 26th Nov 2014

    I am new at wood carving; however, have been a professional calligrapher, glass and metal engraver for more than thirty years. I have always had the very best in tools for all of my work having purchased even the most rare of the tools made during the last 150 years to the most current tools on the market. I have found these tools to be everything that I hoped for and would ever want in lettering and creating my craft using wood as the medium. Congratulations on the best quality ever!

    Having purchsed them a few months back,I've only just managed to get a chance to use these wonderful tools....They're nearly too beautiful to use but I bit the bullet...they're fabulous... razor sharp and easy to use. Thanks to all involved in their manufacture, I'm over the moon.
