The Indasa All-Purpose Scraper is probably the best scraper for removing paint. Available online, it consists of a rigid steel handle that feels substantial in your hand and is very easy to hold. The handle itself has ridges to help your hand to grip.
Towards the business end, there is a clamp that holds a razor-sharp blade. The blades themeslves are interchangeable and double edged, so when your working edge starts to go blunt, you can turn it around and it’s back to its original, razor-sharp state again. Once that edge starts to go blunt, just swap the blade for a new one and you’re good to go again. As a painter and decorator, I wouldn’t be without mine. I use it on pretty much every job.
Everything about the Indasa All-Purpose Scraper feels substantial and solid and it removes loose paint with ease. In fact, there is no better scraper on the market for removing paint and other material. It goes through it like a knife through butter!!
The only other thing to mention is the price. You can pick them up online for about a tenner, which is dirt cheap for what you get. Replacement scraper blades are also cheap. You can’t lose really.
