Years ago tool makers discovered the enormous benefits of cryogenically (super-cold) treated tool cutters, especially plane blades. Now this technology has been applied to Crown's #268KA Multi-Tip Shear Scraper to bring a giant leap in turning tool performance.
Cryo treating cutting tools alters the crystalline molecular form of key ingredients in the metal. This altered structure helps the metal achieve a vast improvement in wear resistance for longer life and longer edge retention, and a superior feel in use.
This tool is ideal for medium to large size object turnings. It comes with a 1-3/8" long by 7/8" wide cryo treated Teardrop Scraping Tip for finishing cuts on a wide variety of surfaces. Also includes an information sheet on the cryogenic treatment process. Tool has a 14" long painted ash handle, and has an overall length of approximately 21-1/2". England
