For anyone interested, I went down to the local welding shop today to get some metal for trade points.  While I was there I got a 24"X8" piece of stainless sheet metal and they used their shear to cut it to scraper sized pieces.  I came out with 6  4"x8" stainless scrapers plus a piece for points for $3.  I also asked about high carbon steel (like band saw blades) for more points  and they gave me 3 old blades from their saw that are 1"x 8' long.  It might be worth a trip to your local welding or metal shop.

This is such a great How-to post I thought I would bring it back up to the top for the newer members to see. 
I started out with nothin' and I still got most of it left

This is just what I was looking for! I'm glad that this was brought to the top, even as old as it is. The only thing I wish was that the images were still intact on the original post. Everywhere I was looking people kept showing that you needed a diamond/oil/water stone for the sharpening process  -- I'm glad that isn't the case (less money that I have to spend getting one shipped, since nobody nearby has one that I know of).
