    2...used to be a choke cable....now it pokes holes in stuff

    Naw, it's made from an old power hacksaw blade, that I got waaay back when I was workin' in a truck machine shop. The "all hard" ones make the best chisels and scrapers going! They hold an edge like you would not believe! If you ever get around a shop that uses a power hack saw ( mostly used for heavy angle/bar stock cutting) snag some of the broken ones.
    'Course you could buy a new one, it would still be a lot cheaper than a good scraper or chisel, since they're about 12" long you would be cutting it in half.
