Super Hard Curved Scrapers
Scrapers are indispensable tools for smoothing wooden surfaces. Well sharpened and given a fine hook, they are useful for removing the finest shavings, thus providing smoother and geometrically more precise surfaces than can be achieved by sanding. By varying the angle, pressure or curvature you can achieve good results even with irregular grain (e.g. knots, inlays, parquetry etc.).
To create the required hook on the cutting edge, the scraper steel must be somewhat ductile, but it should still be hard enough to ensure good edge-holding ability. A hardness of 40-50RC, as with the scrapers offered here, has proven favourable for these contrasting requirements. Fine-grit waterstones for finishing the cutting edges are recommended; a diamond stone or flat file can be used for truing.
