Useful for scraping highly figured and curly woods, smoothing out knots, and removing glue. To some degree it combines the function of a handscraper and a plane, in that it levels like a plane but saves on tired thumbs. The blade can be sharpened to use as a normal scraper or with a 30º-45º angle on the blade for faster and finer cutting. Because the thumb screw in the back bows the scraper, there is no need to round the corners, they shouldn't catch.
