I've owned this scraper for over seven years and have used it for not only self-bow and laminated bow building but general woodworking as well.

I can't say enough good things about the Mystic scraper. Its heft makes it feel more like using a spokeshave but it pulls a fine curl (or dust) like you'd expect from a Bahco (nee Sandvik) cabinet scraper. The curved tips can be used for fine detailed work.

I keep this, along with Nicholson #49 and #50 cabinetmaker rasps in my regular tool pouch and wouldn't want to do without it.

Highly recommended.

My experience appears to be a bit different from other purchasers. I bought mine from a different vendor, though that shouldn't really make a difference. Out of the package the sides were rough and uneven- it looked as though it had been given a freehand sharpening on a bench grinder. The edges weren't flat or straight, and consequently it didn't cut evenly. Where it did cut, it produced sawdust rather than shavings.

I clamped it it my bench and spent ten minutes draw filing it with a double cut cut file to flatten the edges and then did several dozen strokes with a smooth cut file to produce a sharp edge and a burr. Now it does produce a fine shaving rather than sawdust.

I'm not sure if it's really better than a plain cabinet scraper. It doesn't cut any faster. On the plus side, it probably won't heat up with heavy use as quickly as a traditional steel cabinet scraper, as there's more metal to absorb the heat, and it'll probably last longer between sharpenings.

The rounded edges are nice, though a bit tricky to file. I also think that stainless isn't the best voice of materials for a scraper. Plain carbon steel takes a finer edge and is easier to sharpen. I haven't done a bow with it yet, just test pieces, so perhaps my opinion will change after more use.

    Comments about Mystic Scraper:

    Okay, saw this tool and wondered if it would perform as advertized. It does! The edge stays sharp for three bows. Osage, Black Locust (BL) and Hackberry (HB). On Osage this tool shaves like going through butter with no chattering. On BL it does a really nice job too. At first on the HB it wanted to chatter and splinter a little. I found that if I smoothed the belly with sandpaper for a smooth surface it performed much better. Nice curls on the shavings too. One tool that I am totally pleased with.

                                    This scraper is perhaps my favorite bowmaking tool. It is very sharp, holds an edge for a long time, is easy to resharpen, and is quite sturdy. I work with hickory/pecan, which is not a very soft wood. The scraper is so strong, about a quarter inch thick, you can apply heavy pressure and it will not bend, but will shave thick curls of wood (for a scraper). I use it to establish a flat surface, as it is a straight edge and will shave the highest point. Overall, it is a great tool. I made 3 bows before I even sharpened it...it has 4 edges. Great for tillering or general smoothing of contours.
