Scraper Blades

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.

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.

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.

Handy, but rather thin


Verified Buyer

The size is okay, but for the price I was expecting something a little more like traditional scrappers in terms of thickness. Hopefully StewMac will offer a product similar but with a heavier gauge of steel.


This a tool I use a lot.


Verified Buyer

This is a must for guitar repairs
John Tabor




Verified Buyer

Terrible quality. This tool is necessary to edit and re-sharpening.


I could live without 'em, but...


Verified Buyer

They're too cool! This one has some very handy sized curves that make life in the touch-ups lane a lot easier.

Scraper blades


Verified Buyer

I bought two scraper blades to shape a D shape neck to a C shape. Wow I must say its so much better than sanding. I took my time about a week until it felt right. Then I sanded with 400, 600 and 800 hundred P grade paper from Stew Mac.
I followed what Lindy Fralin did with his fender necks, mine is a set neck with a 12 inch radius and having developed arthritis in the past few years makes it difficult on larger necks to play. This went really well for me having the right tools

All the best Stew Mac

Useful I more than one way...


Verified Buyer

While these make for very good card scrapers I also needed to repair a pick guard from a 70's Fender Musicmaster bass recently... it had done the usual cracking down by the last screw hole caused by pulling the jack out. I decided to reinforce the pick guard by routing a shallow cavity and epoxying a steel plate in place to stop it happening again in the future. I had a spare stew mac scraper lying around and it happened to be about the right size... seems to have worked great!


Ok scraper, did not come pre sharpened.  


Verified Buyer

Only one of the 4 sides has anything resembling a burr. Be sure to understand how to sharpen and maintain a scraper before you purchase...
