Yo Kosta: I’m just an old man that doesn’t know too much. I watch little how-to videos to learn something. With minimal practice, sharpening a card scraper is about as simple a process as it comes. If you want to learn how to sharpen a card scraper watch the link below.

Todd – do you really want to encourage (ggg). Mangle comes to mind. Hey, I learned how to sharpen a card from your video but couldn’t find it on my favorites. So I googled. Maybe you could post it again.

kosta,have you looked into forming a rolled edge with a burnisher? there are a million ways to sharpen a card scraper and everyone has different degrees of success with each, but I noticed you didn’t mentioned this method and thought you might be interested. karson blogged it a long time ago. the more arrows in your quiver, the easier it is to hit your mark.

I’ll second davidroberts linked video – good one. explains the need to have a 90 degree edge, honing it, and the burnishing of the burr to get shavings.

IMNSHO, Using a card scraper without a burr is like using a rock instead of a hammer.

i like todds method of card scraper sharpening. no need to burnish the edge at all. simply a few strokes across the file at 90° and you are done

There is a big difference between setting up a card scraper for scrapping versus shaving.
A blunt edge scrapes.A burred edge shaves.
Both are useful and are tradeoffs at opposite ends of the skills spectrum.IMNSHO, There is value in knowing the difference and appreciating both techniques.I use and teach both methods. More importantly, I teach how they are different and when to use each.
