Shear Scraper

Shear scraping is a method of woodturning which relies on the presentation of the scraper at a shear angle to peel away the wood fibres. This technique offers some significant advantages over conventional scrapers.


  • At the optimum angle of 45°, the slicing action is safer and produces a superior finish.

  • Sanding is often unnecessary.

  • The risk of the cutter digging in is virtually eliminated.


The ⅜" square shank sits firmly on the toolrest and presents the cutter precisely at 45° to the workpiece when used in either direction. This is due to the unique cutter seating position.
Cutters also available in our Excelsior high performance range (Titanium Nitride coating).
