Card Scraper Sharpening Redux


Recommended Posts

Good write up. This is the same method that I use but i got a bit higher in the sharpening grit. I run my cards on a 1,000 grit and then 6,000 grit water stone. From my research and some experience i find the finer sharpening stone used the longer I can mess with and get a usable burr.

Once it's sharpened and the burr starts to dull, I'll pull the burr up like you do in image 6 and re-roll it multiple times. I have about 5 card scrapers and so far rotating between them i go back to the stones about once a year.

Speaking of that once a year, sharpening is on my to-do list, that is getting extremely long and I'm running out of time.... :D
