With its square shank seated firmly on the tool rest, this scraper will ensure the optimum shear angle of 45° in either direction. The result is a slicing action that produces a superior finish, often requiring little to no sanding. In addition, the risk of gouging is virtually eliminated. This particular model combines the Sorby Shear Scraper Handle with a (rounded) Square Cutter designed for scraping the outside curves of bowls, goblets, spindle turnings and more. The same handle will also accept the optional Round Cutter (#90269, sold separately), which is designed for scraping inside curves. Both cutters can be re-positioned several times to make use of the entire perimeter before needing to be sharpened. Sharpening is accomplished easily by honing the top face. Replacement cutters are available in both round and square styles.

Robert Sorby #827H External Shear Scraper
This is an incredible tool. The replaceable insert is so handy and eliminates sharpening HSS lathe tools. I have retired all of my standard lathe tools and will purchase additional Robert Sorby tools in the future.

Teaching myself to use a lathe, round scraper works well, now trying the square, although it was on sale for less when I bought it.
