Well I am just starting out so a glendo is way over my budget. So it has a carbide tip, I will buy a few more tips so I can spend more time scraping than sharpening. So 60mm is about a 2.5" in American?
The reason you grind a rounder blade is so you don't get a flat blades corner scratch. A small eye to hand coordination error and you twist the scraper handle and instead of scraping in the center of the blade you catch the corner of the blade and you get a gouge or as some guys say it's an shallow oil groove :rofl: or an extra deep oil pocket. When you buy a Anderson scraper the blade is flat and a great extra deep oil pocket maker :rofl:. Take a look at the last post and as I said grind the blade that round. The one (Biax model # 20-150 or 3/4" wide x 6" long) on the left is about a 60 R and the one on the right ( 25-150 or 1 1/4" x 6") is a 40 r. Rich
PS: Also note the black mark in the center so you can aim the center of the blade when your scraping, in the classes I call it your sight as in a gun, so you can scoot your bolt action gun when hand scraping. We also mark the BIAX Power scraper blade when your machine gunning the high spots off.
