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 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.
