metal scraper on starphire glass - will it scratch?


New member
I need to scrape some corraline algae off my starphire glass. My algae free Velcro scraper isn't cutting it, and neither is my hand-held kent marine pro scraper. I'm deathly afraid of using a metal scraper blade and scratching my glass. What are my chances of it scratching?

shouldn't be a problem. I have a metal scraper I used on my glass all the time. I also have used razor blades. acrylic scratches easily, glass not so much... The only scratches I've put into glass was from using a strong magnet and getting sand trapped between it and the glass.

I use a metal scraper on mine as well and no issues. Just look it over well before hand to make sure there's no bends or burs on it

Starphire is just glass with less iron in it, so it doesn't have the green tint to it. The hardness will be the same.
