negative rake scrapers?

phil in NJ
>Hi,

I just read the recent article on negative rake scrapers. Anyone have recommendations on what scraper(s) to start with?

What angles do you grind on the top and bevel?

I'm mostly interested in making end-grain hollowing easier in very dense wood like blackwood, cocobolo, etc. Existing scrapers are OK but hard to control even without a burr.

Thanks!
Phil
