I have that scraper and it's by far the best scraper I own. It holds an edge for a VERY LONG time, there's no need to flex it, and because it's thick, you don't get the heat. The curved parts are perfect for scraping carvings, carved bowls, and spoons as well. I think they are made out of D2 tool steel.

Those do look interesting. I don't understand how you use them on a flat surface. I'm used to the thumb flex method, which gives a very mild curvature to a card scraper. The rounded ones Stewmac shows have heavy curves and appear to be intended for following hollows. Thoughts?
Best,
