Tungsten Carbide Blade

Carbide Blade This blade has Three uses... It is designed to be the cutting element of the decorator's scraper that we beekeepers have adopted for hive scraping.
(See Hive Scraper.)

It is 1.6 mm thick, 11.5 mm wide and 50 mm long and lends itself admirably to the nicking of glass tubing for accurate snapping.

It can be fitted into a wooden handle with about half its length exposed... When it makes a useful tool for scraping used frame parts.

Re sharpening or "freshening" the edge can be achieved using a diamond hone.
