Large Negative Scraper is a excellent finishing scraper, much more user friendly to use than standard scraper, hard to get a catch with.
9" length x 1 5/16"" x 3/8". Has a 5/8" reciever, Fits my 12" and 16" Handles with 5/8" reciever. No Bushing required. 25* top angle and 70* bottom.
Negative Rake scrapers are a must for finishing wood, turning plastic, acrylics, or dense hard woods.

I am quickly becoming a fan of D-way tools. They arrive sharp, well finished and ready-to-use. There is attention to detail, such as a radiused edge on a scraper so you can use it in an angled shear position. The steel seems to hold an edge as good as or better than my favorite Sorby or Thompson tools. I'll definitely be purchasing more D-Way tools in the future.

I have been shopping for a Negative Rake Scraper for awhile. Including considering grinding my own based on You Tube guides. Nothing I have looked at offered the "beefiness" I like in scrapers to reduce vibrations. I have been very happy with the Large radius 1" scraper from D-Way that I've previously purchased so excepted the same quality. As always, Dave does not disappoint. Im still practicing using the tool when making a final cut rough turning insides of bowl blanks. I am pleased with the minimal teapot and clean , stable cutting action even on very dry ash. I will try it on softer Tamarack blanks today but expect the same results.
It seems that Dave has the angles right to suit my turning style. Only suggestion I would make is for Dave to include a sharpening instruction guide with each of his tools to include his jig set ups and angles on the bevels and if burr removal before sharpening is needed. I use the Robo-Rewst, Wolverine system and the Tormek - depending on the tool. Each has its strengths and shortcomings but I am happy with the edges that Dave has on his tools when I get them and try to maintain them as when I first received them keenly sharpened.
