bookofjoe's Favorite Thing: Tekton Paint Scraper

1111

So many cool features — small things — that, cumulatively, add up to a tool that surpasses its less tricked-out brethren.

111

Among other things:

• Snap-on locking blade protector prevents a potentially nasty injury and blade nicks during storage

5

• Screw-down tightener keeps blade exactly where you put it

22

• Comfortable, soft, ergonomically-shaped non-slip grip

4

• Blade holder has no moving parts to stick or jam

• Uses universal replacement scraper blades

• 4.8" x 1.5" x 1"

• Looks snappy

A snip at $7.40.

Pro tip: think outside the window glass paint scraping space; for example, the inside of a glass shower door: this puppy will remove accumulated soap scum in a Podunkville minute and leave it looking like new.
