Those who referenced David Ellsworth’s techniques are spot-on. David actually teaches what he calls the “shear cut” in his bowl-turning workshops. With his signature gouge (ground to 60-degrees) he shears off long streamers of shavings.

Ellsworth teaches 3 cuts for the outside of a bowl … the “rough cut” knocks off the corners, resulting in a rough shape. He refines the shape with the “shear cut”, then finishes the outside of the piece with “shear scraping”.

From what I can see in the video, this is not a scrape, but is a shear cut.
