Regardless of the steel used to make a tool you can get shavings when scraping. Reed Gray shows how his big ugly tool for example. More than anything depends upon your skill and wood you are turning more that tool steel.

If you use a carbide scraper on a green wood you’ll get a nice ribbon coming off the tool. If you use it on kiln dried wood you’ll get a stream of chips off the tool. That’s my experience anyway.
