In case one hasnt realized, 2 different cuts are being confused. One is what I call a scraping cut, where the tool handle is approx parallel with the ground. This is a roughing, shaping cut – it will tear out. The other is a sheer scrape, where the handle is dropped to ~ 45. This is a light finish type cut which clear up the tron grain by the scrape cut or furrows left by a bevel cut.

The tool bevel angle isnt the key element, as Ive used 40-65 bevel angles for both cuts. The key is having long wings ground on the gouge, hence the mention of “Ellsworth”. Either cut is a bit dangerous with short wings.

(Not sure why some of this is bold)
