The secret to scraping off an old finish is to use sharp tools. Old paint is abrasive and will quickly dull steel scrapers. You end up doing more sharpening than scraping.
This carbide scraper solves this problem. It has a 2" long blade and is excellent for scraping paint or dried glue from flat surfaces. The blade stays sharp many times longer than steel and is reversible for a second life.
With an ugly yet comfortable handle, this scraper is incredibly good value.
