"Bought to remove a degraded PVA coating discovered under some retro wallpaper. Bladed edge naturally gets much closer to the wall than a standard striping blade, removing coating much faster and with less damage to the wall.
Handle is comfortable, blade easy to replace. Would recommend for such jobs. I considered the wider blade option but finding the 4" up to the job and possibly coping better than the wider blade might with the slight undulation of the wall itself."
"This item was purchased to tackle some wallpaper that had had many coats of emulsion and it performed brilliantly. You have to be slightly careful as the blades are very sharp and will gouge the plaster if too much pressure is applied, but once a little time has been spent using it, it becomes less of a problem The only problem I have had has been that 1 of the screws holding the blade has partially stripped the thread, due to the soft material used for the component. (replaceable nuts would be better)."
"The picture only shows one screw but it actually has three and this proves more sturdy. Very good for the price. Got to be careful as it will not only strip the paper but if you get the wrong angle will take the plaster as well."
"What did I ever do without one? Great tool - help with even the most stubborn paper - also rips through ceiling tiles - blades are very sharp (= deep cuts!) and can dig into old / soft plaster - great for removing / flattening old filler and rawlplugs!"
