LIOGIER Hand-stitched Riffler 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 riffler rasps function differently from machine cut rasps. They cut faster and leave a surprisingly good work surface because of the excellent surface quality, extra sharpness, and the slightly irregular spacing of their teeth.

LIOGIER produces only by order. So we have a choice of their most commonly used rasps already in our warehouse so that we can get them in the mail to you right away.

Riffler rasps are used to work curved shapes or in places that are difficult to access. There are 8 models, each with two different sizes plus a larger plumb rasp, making for a total of 17 different rasps available.

The teeth of the Liogier Rasps are come in sizes from 1 to 15, where 1 is the coarsest and 15 the finest. Riffler rasps are available with teeth from 8 to 15, but in practice, the sizes from 11 to 13 are the most commonly used.

Stiche 1 - 15

The blade length of the 175 mm long Riffler rasps is about 40 mm.
The blade length of the 225 mm long Riffler rasps is about 60 mm.
The cross-section measurements were made by us at the widest and thickest point. These measurements are intended only as general information of the size of these tools, and individual tools can be slightly different.

You might also be interested in the slightly larger Plumb rasps!

LIOGIER Plump Rasp For tasks in cabinet making, shaping curved furniture parts. The average grain increased its efficiency and leaves a slightly ridged surface of wood to strengthen the bonding of the veneer. Each side is stitched only on the convexe sides. This rasp is significantly bigger than the rifflers. The picture shows one rasp - but from each side.
