For fine scraping on really difficult grain I like the hook especially in the larger scrapers. The smaller scrapers I made with block plane blades works well. I think the blades without a hook push harder. If I could only have one I’d want the hook. What I like about the non hook is they are quicker and easier to sharpen. I have a place for both in my shop.

You can hook the thicker irons if they are tampered correctly.
