Way better than what I've been using

By

This is like a miniature sharpening steel for kitchen knives. The main difference is, and it's a BIG difference, this tool gives you the angles needed to develop the scraper edge, instead of removing it. I took a new scraper that had a burnished edge on it from the manufacturing process, and used this burnisher to create a cutting edge that was superior to anything else I had used before. the resulting cuts on a maple guitar body were smooth and chatter free. Remember though, once you've used this burnisher on a scraper, you now have a tool that is deceptively sharp, and will cut you as easily as it will wood.

Finally, I love my scrapers

The scraper was never a tool I reached for. The few times I'd used it, results were mixed, at best. I tried burnishing with a traditional rod, but ... meh.

Now, with just a few quick steps, my scrapers are wicked sharp! Such a simple little tool. Just perfect.

Portable and easy to use

The hard part of sharpening a scraper is the filing, but burnishing is what gives you the edge.
I have improvised a burnisher, and tried a standard (long) burnisher with some success.
This tool makes the process much easier and even one-handed!
It also packs more easily, due to its compact size.
And the price is right!
Wish I'd found it earlier!

You need a burnisher

Scrapers are a wonderful thing for a guitar builder, but they need to be properly sharpened.
I'm still getting the hang of it, especially with a concave curved scraper.

This is a well made tool, and once I get the hang of it, I'm sure I'll be thrilled. Just be aware that it's not magical, there is still some skills to develop.

Works Great

I didn't know if I would like this, but after using it on my recently sharpened cabinet scrapers, I'm a fan. It worked great without much effort. It will be close by as I use my scrapers.

Refined my hook

By

Verified Buyer


I never got consistent results sharpening my scrapers manually. This simple tool really impressed me. People with more experience sharpening scrapers unaided by jigs may find this tool to be unnecessary, but if you are like me and never could get the scraper to produce fine shavings (not saw dust) leaving behind a smooth surface then this is worth every penny. A modest price for such a helpful tool. I almost purchased a variable burnished from another tool manufacturer and I'm glad I didn't. The results speak, and the price was very fair. Because of this tool, I now LOVE my card scrapers!

Definitely worth it for me!

Card scrapers have always been a great source of frustration for me, as I've NEVER been able to get a hook turned on the damn things and never been able to get those nice curly shavings - just dust. That is until this arrived last week. Now I love using my scrapers, and plan on a lot more usage of them in the future.
