Card Scrapers and Dual-Handle Burnisher - Shipping January 2023
If you’ve struggled to sharpen and use traditional, thin card scrapers, you’re going to love Blue Spruce Toolworks new card scrapers and burnisher. And, if you’re a master with traditional card scrapers, you’re still going to love Blue Spruce Toolworks new card scrapers and burnisher for the unique features they bring to the table.
Blue Spruce card scrapers are nearly twice as thick as most others on the market. The thicker blade won’t flex. Getting a flat, smooth surface requires less technique, less grip strength and less resharpening. Surfaces you’re trying to scrape flat will be flat, not a series of scallops. The ends of the blade blend off into a gentle curve. There are no sharp corners to gouge your project…or your hands.
The thicker blade accepts burnishing much easier than a thin blade, too. It’s easier to feel when you’re positioned at the correct angle and there’s more to “ride”. Toward that end, we’ve also created a burnisher that’s easier to use, because it has two handles instead of one. With two identical handles, feeling the angle of the burnisher is as simple as steering a bicycle around a gentle curve.
While developing our new burnisher, we tested nearly one hundred different combinations of tool steels and surface finishes. We finally found one that pulls a consistent, razor-sharp hook on the 1095 tool steel scrapers and does it faster and easier than any other material tested. The subtle texture on the surface pulls a stronger, more consistent hook than mirror-finished burnishers. The dual-handle burnisher is available with your choice of wood for the handle, African Blackwood, Cocobolo or resin-infused Figured Maple.
Blue Spruce Card Scrapers come in three shapes; 4" straight, 6" straight and 6" curved. The curved scraper has a 16" radius to blend and smooth your sculptured projects. Each is available individually, or you can buy them as a set. The Card Scrapers will need sharpened upon arrival. The Card Scraper Set includes the 4" straight, 6" straight and 6" curved. Each Burnisher is sold individually and not included in the set.
Please note, we cannot ship the African Blackwood or Cocobolo handles outside the United States. Please order the Figured Maple if your burnisher will be shipped outside the USA.
