About This Item

For ultra-smooth wood surfaces. The first time you use a scraper blade, you'll discover why it's a favorite tool of traditional woodworkers.

Our versatile stainless steel scrapers leave wood surfaces ultra-smooth. They're also the best tools for smoothing plastic bindings, because they don't heat, soften or scratch the material the way sandpaper can. Occasional squaring and burnishing of the edges keeps them sharp and efficient (the Scraper Burnisher makes it easy). These scrapers are available with convex, straight and concave edges, for smoothing and fine-contouring wood surfaces on practically any instrument.

Large scrapers have a variety of contours for trimming bindings, neck profiling, fingerboard surfacing, archtop contouring and graduating, wood deburring, acoustic bridge shaping, and more. Supplied unburnished.

#0654 Rectangular 2-1/2" x 6" x .028"
(63.50mm x 152.40mm x 0.7mm)
#0628 Curved ends 2" x 6" x .028"
(50.80mm x 152.40mm x 0.7mm)
#0655 French curve 3-1/8" x 5-1/8" x .028"
(79.38mm x 130.17mm x 0.7mm)

Mini scrapers are for smoothing smaller areas with finer control. Among their many uses, the concave/convex version is handy for acoustic guitar bridge contouring, and the oval scraper makes quick work of spot-leveling drop-fill finish repairs. The rectangular version has rounded 1/8" and 3/32" notches for fast and easy acoustic bridge saddle crowning (a bonus inspired by an idea from Freddie Cisneros). Supplied unburnished.

#0625 Concave/convex 1-31/32" x 1-17/64" x .016"
(50mm x 32mm x 0.4mm)
#0626 Oval 1-25/32" x 1-3/16" x .008"
(45mm x 30mm x 0.2mm)
#0627 Rectangular 1-25/32" x 63/64" x .016"
(45mm x 25mm x 0.4mm)

Our scraper blade kit includes all 6 scrapers (3 large, 3 mini) in a versatile money-saving set for the guitar shop.

Sharpening scrapers for guitar work: two simple jigs

Link Van Cleave is a sharp guy! He taught tool sharpening at the 2013 Northwoods Seminar. That was a class on professional techniques, but Link also gave us this foolproof Trade Secret for making your favorite scraper super-sharp.

Scraping, not sanding, to prepare wood for finishing

Dan Erlewine shows why he uses scraper blades instead of sandpaper for the final smoothing before the finish goes on a guitar.

Good Quality

(Customer's Reviews)

Great quality scraper which is actually a lot stronger and sturdier than it appears in the display photos. Great for removing high spots while carving neck

Muy buen material y fßcil de afilar, una herramienta indispensable para todo constructor


Scraper Blades

(Customer's Reviews)

Scrapers are very useful for working and preparing wood. They leave a much finer finish in much less time. Unfortunately they are not easy to use and much less sharpening. It took me quite some time to put them to good use and still is difficult to put them in good condition, especially the curved parts.
