Where to find a tenon cork scraper to remove old tenon corks?

On my phone I can't do anything fancy, but there is a $66.00 gizm on Votaw Tool Company's website called a "tenon cork stripper."

I saw that one, but I'm looking for just a simple hand tool, like the one in this video:

Why risk damaging the tenon with such a vicious tool she uses in the youtube video?

I simply score the old cork and remove it - might take a few seconds longer that in the video but at least there's no damage done!

I don't particularly care for her method in that video and I'd never do that to any clarinet. Even worse is how she sands the tenon corks as that's just asking for trouble.

Just use a flat blade screwdriver which is what I use in most cases.

That's what I currently use, but thought there might be a dedicated tool made for this purpose.

take a small flat bladed screwdriver, heat the blade with a torch to red color
and bend tip to 90 degrees and file tip to sharp angle

I haven't personally used one, but Ferrees sells a cork scraper that is (conceptually) somewhere between the one shown in the video you posted, and the one in the photo BobW posted of the bent screwdriver. It looks kinda handy. The item number is F12.

I use a square-edge scraper blade in a hobby knife. Works fine. Finish up with a wipe with a stiff brush (an old nail brush).

I use old pliers I inherited from my grandfather that just happen to be perfect for that (it's all I use them for). It doesn't damage anything. To remove the last bits, I use a brass brush on a dental micromotor.

I never liked any of those scrapers that are supposedly shaped to remove tenon corks. I also really like most of Votaw's stuff, but that cork stripper is useless IMO.

I too use a flat head screwdriver, but JL smith also makes a tool for it. They seem to make a tool for everything. Here it is at http://www.jlsmithco.com/fix-kit-tools/jls-cork-and-pad-cup-scraper

Not as curved as the one in your video, however.

I have had the Dawkes scraper for many years...the design makes it very simple to avoid any damage to the wood and lowers the risk of injury on corks that are very stuck (like shellac with embedded thread, e.g."

Considering Dawkes are the main UK importer of Ferree's tools, it's probably a Ferree's tool. They're listed here, but chances are they're cheaper in the US:

I remember that I looked at Ferree's once and then later saw them on the Dawkes site...have no recollection of what I paid, but it's a very effective tool. Makes a simple job of removal, no matter what stupid thing the previous handler did...

Update: I ordered the Ferree's Tools cork stripper (F12)

https://www.ferreestoolsinc.com/products/f12-cork-stripper?variant=656581277


It looks identical to the one offered by Dawkes, but theirs is currently out of stock:

The Ferree's cork stripper arrived today and it looks like a high quality tool that will do the job nicely.
