Liogier Needle Rasps

Recommended Posts

Group - I order number 14 needle rasps kit back in August - handmade and stitched.   They arrived last week - wow - I can not recommend them highly enough.  I corresponded directly with the owner/artist Noel - during the manufacturing process.  They are not cheap but will last a lifetime if taken care of.  Here's his site.

I agree that hand-stitched French rasps are amazing. I've had two Auriou rasps for many years. They are expensive but far out-perform any commercial mass-produced tool.

Be sure to sign up for an epic Nelson/Trafalgar project if you would like to see it made into a TV series  http://trafalgar.tv

I just watched a video of the Auriou factory making rasps BY HAND.  Amazing.
