The Robert Sorby RS200KT is a multi-purpose turning tool that comes packaged with three replaceable cutters - two for hollowing, one for scraping. Of the two hollowing cutters, the one with the rounded end is designed for general roughing out and will create a flowing curve as in the bottom of a vessel. The more pointed cutter is for fast material removal and also produces a crisp corner in a box. The scraper features a rounded section for inside curves and a flat section for outside curves. A selection of optional cutters is available below. See "more images" for profiles.

Features:
  • 3/4" half-flat shank is in permanent contact with the tool rest and so minimizes the impact of rotational forces
  • Features two hollowing tips which are fitted to a swiveling clamp
  • Swiveling clamp allows for straight hollowing and undercutting under a rim
  • One tip is rounded to create a flowing shape like bowls
  • Second tip is pointed for squarer shapes like boxes
  • Second end of each HSS tip is left plain for the turner to custom shape
  • Also includes a scraper blade for finishing
  • Scraper has three different working faces making it a round scraper, a half-round scraper and a square scraper all rolled into one
  • Scraper can be used on the half-round shank for shear scraping
  • All three tips or cutters are HSS and sharpened with a diamond hone on the top
  • Replacement cutters available
  • Separate beading, coving, and recess cutters (also called dovetail cutters) available separately
  • Includes hex wrench and hex-head bolts

Wonderful Tool
I bought this beauty yesterday and had no problems with it what so ever... The instructional video was very thorough! The only thing I regret not getting was the other attachments that are sold separately which I will end up getting eventually! Wonderful Job on this tool Robert Sorby!

It would take at least half...
It would take at least half a dozen other tools to replace my multi-tip shear scraper and you would have to work hard to convince me I might be better off. This one tool has saved me a small fortune in other tools I would want/need if I didn't have it. Changing bits is not as convenient as picking up another special purpose tool, but being able to adjust the angle of the bit to the task at hand is invaluable.

Takes a little getting used to...
Takes a little getting used to since the cutting edge is further from the tool rest but the versatility is wonderful.

This is my second favorite turning...
This is my second favorite turning tool, right after my 1" oval skew. It is very well made, stable and easy to use, and it holds its cutting edge even in the toughest woods such as wenge and ebony. My favorite aspect of this tool is that it effectively replaces six other tools for a little more than the price of any one of them: The teardrop scraper replaces three sizes of round scrapers, a straight-end scraper, and a spear point tool, plus it can be used for shear scraping. If that weren't enough, the tool comes with two hollowing tips as well! In my opinion, this turning tool is the single best value for the dollar on the market today.

Very good tool
I like it very much; hollowing and scarping is more efficient and safer. The only point I wish to make is the video was short and needed more details, but I am learning.

at what angle is the tool presented to the wood for scraping?
tony t on Aug 26, 2016
BEST ANSWER: This will greatly depend on what you are trying to accomplish and on what cutter you have in the tool. You will just have to experiment with angles, speed, and the amount of pressure the user applies. Also, you might tilt the tool up or down when cutting. There are too many variables. In other words there is no single answer to the question.
I have this tool and I would like to know if the tips are available with out purchasing the entire tool. RS200KT?
yes
