Topic tags/keywords: tip They are great for scraping wood. They actually work better than a conventional flat card scraper on wood edges, 3/4 to 1” thick. Card scrapers can “rock” on narrow edges.

With some practice I don’t have a problem with a card scraper “rocking” on narrow edges. I have never used utility blades as wood scrapers but I imagine they wouldn’t work as well as you can’t put a hook on the blade edge.

I’ve tried razor blades as scrapers, but found a card scraper works better for me. The razors do work great for scraping old gaskets from engines, transmissions and machines.
