Chris Pye comments:
I’m pleased to say that Forge de Saint Juery has begun producing their revised Auriou woodcarving tools – a basic set of 7 to begin with and more to follow.
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.
