I just looked it up. I looks like a copy of the Hunter tools. They changed the photo. In the last catalog they show the tool being used flat. That is absolutely wrong. Here's my video on how to use that tool.

I had it. Tried it flat based on the instructions. It was ugly. Took it back. Salesman said a lot come back for that reason. After Johns video it may be worth another try.
Salesman recommended Hunter instead even though they didn't sell them

Obviously the Salesman knows nothing about the tool. The would both cut the same way and get catches the same way if used incorrectly. That is why I produced the video in the first place. People were using the tool wrong. It's such a wonderful tool when used correctly.

John I just to say thank you for the video. I have had the rockler tool for a while now and the only thing I have used it for is a shear scraper. Now I will have to try and use it the way you show. When I first got it all I was doing was trying to kill myself. Maybe now I can get to wear the carbide out. . thanks again.
