Roots

Old Norse skrapa (to scratch) is traced to Indo-European “root” sker or ker (to cut). See SCORE.  Spanish scratch, (es)carbar, reveals the “S” of SCRAPE to be unhistoric.  Many “S”s  before gutturals are from various prefixes or are otherwise nonhistoric, see SCOOP.

A garden rake is a scraper and a (S)CRAPER is a "hoe" or  (Mi)GRayPHaH (Joel1:17). The word is elsewhere rendered "furrow."

See CURT for KR words of cutting short.


Branches

GaLaBH is to scrape or shave; K[H]eReBH is a sword or blade.

One can hear GRAPH in the captioned Hebrew term, even if one doesn't have a Texas drawl. Cognates of GRAPH at Indo-European “root” gerbh (to scratch) include AGRAPHA, CARVE, CRAB, CRAWL, CRAYFISH, DIAGRAM, EPIGRAM, EPIGRAPH, GRAFFITTI, GRAM, -GRAM, GRAMMAR, -GRAPH, GRAPHITE, ICONOGRAPHY, PARAGRAPH, PROGRAM, PSEUDEPIGRAPHA, TETRAGRAMMATON, and TOPOGRAPHY. K[H]aPHaR (to dig) is akin to a KRP cutting term – see   GOPHER.

See CARVE, CRAB, GRADE, and GRAPHITE. 

For the bogus initial-S before K or hard-C words, see SCOOP.
