Picked this up from CL for $20. Looks to be an older version of tool never used – oil still on the blade. I know they’re very common but still pleased.

its a great tool, I had the Kunz (German Version) before…....consider this Hock blade, Hardened for a balance of long edge life and burr “rollability”.

Unisaw – do I detect a “Made in England” sticker on that scraper?
btw – a friend gave me a NOS case of the malleable version back in November. All had original box with one of the few red Stanley labels, packing paper and instructions. It took a lot longer than you’d guess to get rid of all but one (for me). And they did not fetch a lot.
just one man’s experience.

I have been looking for one for a while that is not over priced. Nice find.

Have your say...
