Round, oval, or triangle... which burnisher do I need? I'm using the set of 3 scrapers.
DJ Wood Butcher on Dec 13, 2018
BEST ANSWER: First thing you'll need is a "Mill Smooth" file, to shape and refresh the edges of your scrapers. Many woodworkers follow up with fine honing stones to refine and polish the edge of the scraper, but I never found any benefit to doing this that would justify the extra time and mess. Last thing for sharpening your scrapers is to burnish the edge, which polishes the edge and forms the hook, or burr, which does most of the actual cutting. A round burnisher can be used on any shape scraper, but the oval shape has a tighter curve on one side of the oval that works better on the tight inside curve of that goofy-shaped gooseneck scraper. The triangle burnisher has such a tight curve on the points of the triangle that I use mine with "firm fingertip pressure" only: any more pressure and you're grinding both burnisher and scraper into oblivion.

For most scraper users, I generally recommend the round burnisher: it's more forgiving. The oval is a better option if you expect to actually use the curved scraper(s) on a regular basis. The triangle is a bit more of a "high performance" tool which won't require you to hold your scraper in a vise to sharpen it, but you've got to be a bit cautious with how much pressure you use or you could wreck it.
