These Modeller’s Rasps are finer-toothed and more tapered than the Cabinetmaker’s Rasps, making them adept at refining detail work and adjusting tight corners. The narrow width of the Modeller’s Rasps makes them popular for touching up furniture carvings and scrollwork, and the impeccably smooth finish of a hand-stitched rasp justifies every stroke.

Auriou uses a scale of 1 to 15 grain to describe the cut of their rasps, with 1 the coarsest and 15 the finest.
For more information of grain (the degree of fineness or coarseness) other terminology, and how to use and care for your rasps click here.

Walnut handle with brass ferrule.

Made at the Forge de Saint Juery in France.

Auriou & Gramercy rasps

By: Leo Hall (May, 2014)

When I started working on instruments a few years ago, I picked up three Auriou and two Gramercy rasps. Both are joyful to work with. I have a very long #8 Auriou and would never give it away. It takes off wood quickly and efficiently with wonderful control as do all the Auriou rasps. But if you want the absolute the next best thing Gramercy is certainly not far behind. Both are beautifully build, I do have a tendency to grab for my Auriou's but they are all under lock and key after too many people wanted to borrow them - That will not happen.
I own this product.
