A pair of hand scrapers made from premium, high carbon Swedish Tool Steel, 62 x 150mm(2.1/2" x 6"). The set includes one scraper blade 0.5mm (.020" x 6"), which makes for a very supple scraper, and one 0.8mm (.032") thick, which is much stiffer. These blades are accurately ground square on the long edges, are easy to use, very handy and, once correctly burnished leave behind an excellent surface on the timber. Hardened to HRC 49-51.

Brilliant toolI first used cabinet scrapers many years ago on a woodworking course. Since then I have not owned any, but finally took the plunge and picked up this Lie-Nielsen set. They have already proven to be invaluable in cleaning up the wooden parts round my staircase. I have used them on the large upright and handrail. They do a similar job to sanding BUT leave a much nicer finish, and are more controlled and better at working on edges or places that are harder to each. They have been the only tool I had that could get into some of the very tight spaces to remove the finish from the handrail back to bare wood. Both sizes are useful and effective. You do of course need a burnisher to put an edge on them, I also bought the Lie-Nielsen burnisher and have had brilliant results considering it is my first time using one!
