      Arent they supposed to be hollow ground ala pre hauge/geneva convention triangular bayonets? Basically radiused on all three sides?

              You need a de-buffing tool. They are available at Harbor Freight in the mystery bin.

                Please, also mind a harsh grinder will have a kick back. Extreme palm penetration hazard.

                          what happened to your scraping videos. I really enjoyed watching those they helped me get to sleep so many time.

                          IT SEEMS ALMOST AS IF YOU WERE ASHAMED OF THEM!!!

                                  One big improvement you can make on that sort of triangle scraper is using your bench grinder the make the 3 faces concave. It can be a bit finicky to get it done nicely but once done sharpening becomes far easier and faster as you're only removing metal right near the edge when running it over the stone. Pro tip, small worn down wheels work better as they have a smaller radius so the faces will be more deeply concave.

                                                            Well darn. This Old Tony has apparently professed his undying love to 2 of the 2 comments I've made to his videos... I now feel an odd compulsion to make another comment on one of his videos. Strange. So I'll share some of my own experiences I've filed away. Unfortunately I don't have any advanced futuristic tools like This Old Tony, and I'm forced to work with some dingy low tech 15,000W Laserdyne 6 axis Fiber lasers. Sad true, but you know how to saying goes "When life gives you lemons, you blow them up with lasers". At least that's how I remember it. Even in my line of work files are a surprisingly great resource. I've used them for everything from screw drivers to "precision" chisels, and even used them to cut through sheet metal. Something I was disappointing to see excluded from This Old Tony's "How to Bending?!" video.
