LIOGIER Hand-stitched 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 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. Read our special page about the Four steps used to produce a LIOGIER hand-cut rasp .

The cutting geometry of the teeth on these rasps is oriented so that they cut best when used by a right-handed person.

The tooth sizes are numbered from 1 to 15, with 1 being the coarsest, and 15 the finest. In practice, only the sizes between 4 and 14 are commonly used.

Cuts 1 - 15

Liogier handlemaker's rasp curved

This rasp is concave, ie, stitching is provided only on the inside curve, whose cross section is once again convex. With this design, these rasps are ideal for shaping the handles of saws. In particular, they are perfect for working on inside curves. Thanks to the rasp’s radius and because the obverse side is unstitched, it is nearly impossible to accidentally damage the opposite inner side of a handle. They are also practical for creating other wooden utensils with special or unusual shapes. Supplied with a wooden handle.
