Default Good Wax Scraper

I'm going through cheap plastic scrapers because they get so dull and I wax so many boards. So it's time to buy a new one and saw some metal scrapers. Anyone recommend a good scraper that doesn't dull so quickly? Or am I just stuck buying a few scrapers a year?

I always sharpen my plexiglass scrapers with sandpaper. Hold a piece of sand paper on a flat surface and rub the edge of the scraper against it. Just be sure to hold the scraper at a right angle. I suppose you could build some kind of jig to hold it, but as long as you end up with crisp edge it doesn't really matter if it's not a perfect 90 degree

Never had a problem doing that and I've been using the same scraper for years.

Yeah I saw one on dogfunk but it was 40 bucks. Anyone know if they actually work? At $10 a scraper i might as well buy the sharpener if its worth it.

2nd vote for sharpening the scraper on a file or sandpaper. I prefer metal but we only sell the one that's in these kits.

I use a metal putty scraper you can buy at any hardware store or Wal-Mart. When it goes dull I buy a new one. Literally takes half the time to scrape a board with a metal one. And once you wax a couple of times you get used to the pressure you need to put on it and everything. I used a plastic one once...And never again.

I never thought of a putty knife. How do you scrape with it? Pushing it or pulling it?

there's tons of different types of scrapers and putty knives at hardware stores, i would think you could find some really good alternatives.
