Can a scraper be a functional, well-engineered work of art? This one is. A bit "over the top" for a mere scraper? Perhaps. I use scrapers to clean up the inside of a bowl and to finish the bottom of end-turned vessels ( I don't do tiny openings). I needed a hefty scraper that wasn't too wide to get to the bottom of deeper vessels, especially when I couldn't get one of my rests in far enough. I have now used this scraper on vessels, scraping the end grain with full overhang of the tool and found it to be amazingly stable. Of course, I do stick it in a hefty OneWay handle and that helps, but the thickness of this scraper makes a huge difference. Beyond that, I've got scrapers in M2 and A10 from various makers and all of them came with sharp edged sides ... where the tool hits the rest. D-Way puts a nice radius on the corners of all their tools ... the only sharp edge is the cutting edge. Just beautiful. And all their tools come with a sharp cutting edge. I'm no expert sharpener and I have to work at it to get my D-Way tools as sharp as they came. In this case the burr that came on this tool cut nice shavings and lasted about twice as long as the ones I put on. As Dave says in one of his videos ... "It'll be sharp once anyway". I think he was talking to me.

Talked with Jimmie prior to buying this tool. I thought there way no way it would perform as he indicated. It doesn't; it so unbelievably superior to how he indicated it would perform. This tool solves your transition zone problems. Have used it on bowls from three inches in diameter to eighteen inches in diameter without a sniff of a catch. Like the rest of their tools, sharpening is a snap.
