Burnishers are used to form a burr or hook on card scrapers and scraper plane irons. The burnisher needs to be smooth and hard. Ground and polished carbide is one of the hardest materials available and makes an ideal burnishing rod. Blue Spruce Toolworks burnishers are the highest quality possible and feature either a 1/4", 5/16" or 3/8" diameter solid carbide rod that is supported deep into the handle for maximum strength and extending about 2-3/4 inches. There are three handle options for a custom, comfortable grip and are available in Hard Curly Maple, African Blackwood and Cocobolo. We can also make a handle using wood that you supply.
Please note that due to current CITES regulations we are unable to ship African Blackwood, Cocobolo and other Rosewoods or dalbergia outside of the USA. Please do not order these options if your final shipping destination is not in the USA. Thank you for your understanding.
