Liogier Rasps

Liogier Rasps

The Liogier family have been making beautiful hand stitched rasps in the Auvergne region of France for four generations.

Liogier brand French hand stitched rasps are trusted and treasured by manufacturing firms, companies of artisans and individual craftspeople worldwide.  Widely used in woodcarving, sculpture, patternmaking, cabinet making, and luthierie, Noel Liogier also makes rasps for surgeons who value their remarkably smooth and effortless cutting action.

The traditional craft of hand stitching individual teeth, one by one, into a polished carbon steel blank is only part of a 30 step process. Liogier carry out all of the steps in-house, including open die forging, hand grinding and polishing, hand stitching and of course the vitally important art of heat treatment.

The full Liogier range of 810 tools is mind boggling, so we asked Noel for his personal recommendations of the most popular profiles, lengths and grains of rasps for woodworkers.

  1. Liogier Cabinet Rasp #2 300mm

    £67.70
    Cabinet rasps are a slightly flatter and wider version of a halfround, they therefore have more teeth in contact with a shallow curve, making them up to twice as efficient at producing the graceful flowing curves typically found in furniture work. Since we do a lot of trade with furniture makers we have gone for a slightly broader selection of this popular type. The 300mm is a large, coarse, aggressive beast that removes lots of material quick...

    Liogier Modellers Rasp #10 250mm

    £67.70
    Modellers rasps are named for modélistes (pattern makers), also known as effilé (slender), they are unsurprisingly a slender halfround rasp traditionally favoured by patternmakers. The profile is a little bit narower and fatter than a halfround, and quite a lot narrower and fatter than a cabinet rasp. They are lovely for creating tight radius roundovers where shapes meet, as you would when blending out any sharp corners in a casting that mig...

    £59.00
    The classic square rasp, parallel for two thirds of its length and gently tapered for the last third toward the tip.

  13. Liogier Flat Rasp #9 250mm

    £58.70
    Flat rasps ('hand' in Sheffield terminology) are the most efficient tool for forming chamfers or simple and compound curvatures (imagine every possible form or portion of a roundover on a straight or curved edge). Having two flat stitched faces that tend to make full contact with the work, they are very efficient to use. One edge is toothed and the other safe, giving you the option to extend into a corner or preserve what is there. This is the...

    Liogier Round Rasp #9 300mm

    £59.00
    With an overall length of just over 17 inches, and an aggressive yet controllable No.9 grain, this hand stitched Liogier 'Queue de Rat' (rat tail rasp) must have come from a pretty impressive rat! Round rasps are gently rolled as they are pushed through the cut to engage as many teeth as possible. At 90 degrees to the workpiece the round rasp produces a U shaped channel, at lower angles they form one end of an ellipse, they are also a very in...
  17. Liogier Round Rasp #12 200mm

    £49.50
    The 200mm No.11 grain round rasp is a 'normal' medium sized rasp for general work. Round rasps are gently rolled as they are pushed through the cut to engage as many teeth as possible. At 90 degrees to the workpiece the round rasp produces a U shaped channel, at lower angles they form one end of an ellipse, they are also a very instinctive roughing tool for three dimensional work - cutting evenly in all directions, the round rasp is ideal for ...
  18. Liogier Round Rasp #14 150mm

At 90 degrees to the workpiece the round rasp produces a U shaped channel, at lower angles they form one end of an ellipse, they are also a very instinctive roughing tool for three dimensional work - cu...
  19. Liogier Straight Float Pull Version

    £39.90
    Woodworking floats are fitting and finishing tools for endgrain, they are most commonly associated with the crafts of the of the stocker and the plane maker, although anyone who finely adjusts end grain surfaces for a precision fit is likely to find them indispensable. Like their relatives the scraper and the rip saw, floats work best on long grain or end grain; for similarly controlled cuts across the grain, paring chisels are usually the too...
