The Home of Auriou Toolworks

Most Popular

Since its origins in 1856, Auriou Toolworks has produced quality tools for the precise shaping of wood, stone and plaster.

Faced with closure between 2007 and 2008, two hand tool enthusiasts saved the company, reigniting Auriou’s forges under the new name of Forge de Saint Juery.


Today, fourth generation rasp maker Michel Auriou is the man in charge and has recently regained ownership of his family business.

Since 1967, every Auriou tool has been hand-forged at the Forge de Saint Juery, where we carry out traditional processes - forging blanks, grinding, heat treatment and hand-stitching - all "in house" at our forge.
This ensures the unwavering quality and performance of each tool that bears the Auriou name.

Our range includes the famously hand-stitched rasps and rifflers for wood, as well as firesharp stone carving chisels for working on marble and soft stone.

We also have a range of wood carving tools designed and endorsed by the master carver Chris Pye.


Auriou will not compromise quality for cost, which means some tools are made to order and might take a bit longer to get to you.

If you are ever near the little town of Saint Juery, France, please feel welcome to visit the forge and meet with Michel Auriou.
