Bought this to strip some old wallpaper. The 7 inch blade which is razor sharp made light work of it. I stripped a room in under 3 hours. It goes through the wallpaper like a knife through butter and the shear size of the blade means you get a lone done quickly.
I will never use a standard short handles scraper again!
"I'm not a pro and haven't used much of scrapers before.
I like this thing for very comfortbale strong and soft grip which allows to put force to it in correct angle.
I used it for removal of "wooly" ceiling made of gypsum and covered in paint as well as removing paint from the plastered wall after holding the steamer to it. I have to say plaster has to be repaired though as it was scratched.
