>Who says you can't ride the bevel on a scraper. Used like this, it cuts like a skew chisel with a thick angle, it is sharpened the same way as a skew with a sharp edge and no burr, and the surface finish looks like it was made with a skew.

WARNING:
Do not try doing this until you have mastered the skew chisel.
