Olfa X-DESIGN HD Scraper 200mm long - XSR-200
Re-developed based on the BSR scraper, the OLFA® XSR-200 benefits from X-DESIGN™ excellence.
This means that it has a very comfortable, anti-slip grip, allowing you to use maximum pressure to scrape. The elastomeric grip takes a lot of the pressure off your hand, resulting in greatly reduced strain over long periods of use. The body is also re-inforced with fibreglass, for ultimate durability and resistance to everyday materials and solvents.
The X-DESIGN™ series gets its name from th 'X' conjoined handle. It is made of PP (polypropylene) elastomer and fibreglass that is resistant to acidand acetone, resulting in much less wear and tear compared to most plastic body knives. X DESIGN knives combine tremendous power with accurate control to ensure safe, smooth and effective cutting, even with tough materials.
The XSR-200 has several unique features:
Firstly, you can change the blade without the need for any screwdriver or other tools. Simply unlock the wheel on the front by turning it anti-clockwise with your thumb, and then hold button on the back to release the spring while you replace the blade. Once you have changed the blade, tighten the wheel again. This double blade lock (wheel + spring) means that the blade is held securely and tightly in place while scraping at all times. No loose blades, no scraped rubbish clogging up the blade channel, no frustration.
Secondly, the scraper has a hammerable end, making it suitable for removal of even the most stubborn substrates including floor tiles, adhesive, wall tiles, coatings, carpets, linoleum and practically any other hard to remove surface.
When the scraper is not in use it has an easy clip-on blade cover to protect your fingers when hunting through your tool kit.
This tool will last.

For stripping wallpaper, we recommend using the XSR-200 with a BSF blade - a 50mm long flexible blade that really gets under wallpaper to take it off quickly. It is not as sharp, so is less prone to damaging the wall or ceiling.
