Ruler Trick for Scrapers

Chris Schwarz posted a nifty trick for prepping scrapers that I thought I’d point you to in case you didn’t see it. He grips the scraper blade with the ruler, sliding both along the stone, rather than sliding the blade over the ruler. And he uses a block of wood to distribute down-force over the edge of the scraper for uniform honing. Both good ideas!
