Product Description & Reviews
Chris Pye - Auriou Lettering Gouges and Fishtails - Set of 7 These lettering gouges and chisels were designed by master woodcarver Chris Pye and are made by Auriou Toolworks. The set of seven allongee style lettering gouges and chisels supports a range of lettering heights.
Octagonal ash handles with a slight curve to fit the hand are fitted with brass ferrules Chris Pye comments "I'm pleased to say that Forge de Saint Juery has begun producing their revised Auriou woodcarving tools. "Auriou woodcarving tools have been among my favorites since I 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.
I recently had the privilege of working with Auriou on a re-design of their woodcarving tools. The new gouges have the older, 'allongee' style of blade that splays from the shoulder: they are lighter to use, the corners are more available for cutting, and their thin walls are of a uniform thickness.
