Scorps also go by a lot of different names: scorpers, cooper’s round shaves, croom irons, two handed round shaves, and inshaves, to list just a few. Historically, barrel makers used them for leveling the joints inside a cask, but these days their most popular use is by chair makers for dishing out seats and by bowl makers for hollowing bowls and troughs. A sharp scorp will make fast work of any hollowing work. This particular one by Ray Iles is solidly made in the old tradition. The air dried English beech handles are finished in linseed oil, just like the old tools. The high carbon steel will take a keen edge and is easily sharpened. The scorp comes ground, but needs a final honing for best performance. Approximately 4" in diameter. This is a heavy tool designed for real work. Made in England.

This tool came well sharpened but just a little work on the hone has it razor sharp. Good quality & price.
