|â€¢ It is made from 1095 spring steel that has been hardened and tempered to a Rockwell (C) hardness of 48 to 51. This hardness makes it easy to turn a hook with a standard burnisher (though carbide is always the superior choice for a burnisher) and the hook lasts plenty long.
â€¢ The faces are polished and blued for rust-resistance.
â€¢ The scraper is cut to shape using waterjet for precision and to preserve the hardness of the steel. Then the toolâ€™s edges are hand ground and polished to make the tool easy to set up and maintain.
â€¢ The scraper comes with a magnet, which acts as a heat sink while scraping, making the tool comfortable to use for long periods.
â€¢ The tool is supplied with a heavy paper envelope that is perfect for storing the scraper, protecting its edges while itâ€™s sitting in your tool chest or cabinet.
