scraper for getting into tiny groves

Soft Grip Contour Scraper Review

By Rachel Bates

 

We had this tool for a good few weeks before we had the opportunity to use it, not because it isn’t handy, quite the opposite! It’s a brilliant little tool and is a prime example of ‘the right tool, for the right job’.

After using it, I was aware of many little jobs in the past where this would have been ideal! It isn’t going to break the bank buying it, it’s going to be that tool that sits in your tool bag, but when you need it you will want it to hand.

It’s a small soft grip handle with interchangeable blades, these blades slot over the top with ease, with no risk of injury. The blades are double ended with opposite sides being a different shape. Convex and concave curves, points and straight blades. 12 different shapes in total. These are designed to be scraped towards you, so you aren’t digging into the substrate.

I stripped a nightmare Victorian fireplace with ‘Peelaway’ it had more than enough stubborn layers and even after 2 days, there were areas that needed a little help to remove! This tool with its varying blades covered every intricate area of the fireplace!

PROS

12 Blades! These covered pretty much every curve or size I Needed for this particular project. Small handheld, doesn’t take up any room and can be always carried in work vehicle. Safe to use. You’re always fully in control if you follow the instructions, you’re unlikely to damage your surface. Saved me so much time!!

 

CONS

My only complaint! The case isn’t’ ideal. One of the lugs that held a blade broke when we removed it. This is admittedly minor, but when you’re a trade carrying multiple tools, one of the equally as important aspects when choosing a tool is that it can be contained. Although I think it would have been unlikely to fall out the case, it’s a risk it could become mislaid or injury if it was to fall out.
