I hope to be beating on a live horse not a dead one. By learning what makes Derek's scraper work we may find other ways of taking advantage of the fundamentals. So, is the edge angle afforded by the hollow grind on the wide blade critical? Would a straight across grind work as well, or a bevel on a thinner blade.
Derek....I assume your scraper can be/is used on each side/face, not an insignificant advantage over a bevel on a thin scraper?
