Description

"The Sandvik Scraper" is the original card scraper famous in woodworking circles, this is the replacement model the 475 Sandvik Scraper referenced in Tage Frid's Book 2: Shaping, Veneering and Finishing. Bahco's hard Swedish cold-rolled, hardened and tempered chrome-nickel steel takes a fine burr & holds it much longer than ordinary card scrapers. Machined surfaces & edges come ready for sharpening & burnishing. A well-sharpened scraper can cut your finishing time in half. Card scrapers are ideal for finishing, removing glue squeeze-out, leveling across joints, and eliminating tearout. The Bahco 474's .032" thickness is moderately stiff, the perfect scraper for finishing flat surfaces. Comes with a plastic protective sleeve, 2-7/16" x 5-7/8" x .032".

Quailty Card scraper

Review Summary

I've used this card scraper for a lot of years now and it holds and edge well. I also appreciate the slip cover it comes in as well, that helps to keep the edge from being dinged in between uses. I love using card scrapers over hand sanding. It leaves so much better a finish with much less mess.The only reason I rated this a four on ease of use is that it does take some practice to learn how to sharpen these. And then you have to resharpen them when they dull.
Wished I had discovered these when I first started in woodworking. A real nice under appreciated tool by a lot of woodworkers.
