Arlin,

I think the terms are used interchangeably, but think that a scorp looks like a full circle with a single handle, while an inshave looks like a horseshoe with two handles. Either way, here are a couple of videos by Barr Quarton and Curtis Buchanan on how to sharpen them.

Arlin,

The terms scorp and inshave tend to be used interchangeably. Scorps tend to have a semi-circular blade, whereas inshaves are more u-shaped. Each chairmaker has his own preference. Antique inshaves tend to be more u-shaped. The circular shape is more recent. Most chairmaking inshaves have two handles. A single handled scorp would make for arduous work to shape a chair seat.

Here's a link to Peter Galbert's chair making notes blog where he talks about the differences and his preferred shape.

Here's a link to a YouTube video where Chris Buchanan - a pretty good chairmaker - sharpens his scorp.
