LIOGIER Hand-stitched Needle Rasps

Liogier Logo

For over 100 years, LIOGIER has been producing high-quality hand-stitched rasps in the Auvergne Region of France. At one time, although almost unknown outside of France, it was the largest producer of these tools in Europe.

Hand-cut needle rasps are clearly different tools compared to machine made ones. They take material off faster, and leave a surprisingly cleaner surface behind because of the ultra-sharpness, and slightly irregular layout of the hand-cut teeth.

LIOGIER produces only by order. But we have a selection of their most commonly used rasps in our warehouse so that we can get them in the mail immediately.

Needle rasps are a must for precision work on musical instruments, model building and any kind of small work pieces. There are four different forms:
Half round
Flat
Round
Knife

The tooth sizes are numbered from 1 to 15, where 1 is the coarsest and 15 the finest. Needle rasps exist in sizes between 13 and 15, and 14 is the most commonly used.
