Yes, i really liked Stumpy’s little card scraper sharpener block. I think I’ll make one and mount it someplace. If I had one I’d probably touch mine up more often instead of using it duller.

I’ve actually got a couple dozen scrapers. My brother worked at the Portsmouth naval shipyard long ago as a nuclear pipe welder. he’d bring home various thicknesses of stainless steel. most pieces about,5×7” or so. The thinner ones really work well. I’ve been on the lookout for one of those stanley #80 cabinet scrapers. I’ve seen them on ebay and such. I might make one of the wooden ones shown by stumpy. It looks like it would work well.

I also use glass. I go to he glass place and ask them for some scraps in their barrel. Put them in a paper bag and tap them with a hammer. One side will always have a nice edge and you get some pieces with some nice curves. And contrary to popular belief, it doesn’t cut your fingers to use it.
