Behind each rasp is 4 generations of skill and craftsmanship.
When you consider buying a rasp there are a few key factors to consider. The quality of the steel being used and the process to forge it, the shaping of the rasps, stitching method, and final tempering. Each step in the process will lead the cut quality, efficiency and longevity in the end product.
The process LIOGIER uses in each of these steps has been maintained for 4 generations. From forging to final finishing the entire process is controlled by LIOGIER with the end result being a superior product.
For saw makers, hammer set teeth a superior to all other methods. For rasps it is the hand stitching that truly separates a superior product. All LIOGIER rasps (and rifflers) are hand stitched resulting in an uneven efficient cut pattern.
