Why a double end handle ?

Two tools in one, it can be useful when traveling, and it is € 20 less than buying two separate tools. The weight of the tool is also slightly higher, but it is lighter tools that handle 100% metal.

How to choose your tool ?

Start by choosing a handle, and then choose the appropriate tools for your job. Agate burnishers are available with specific handle.

I offer three types of tools for these handles

- Etching needles -> select "Etching needle / Extra soft tungsten carbide drypoint" option. This tip gently glides on the ground, and you will get extremely fine lines. It will also allow you to work directly as drypoint, unvarnished, for sensitive grays.
- Drypoints, available in three different materials (see below)
- Ceramic scrapers, available in two sizes. They are used as pencils, not horizontally like conventional scrapers. Ceramics also allows scrape copper easily and with a very good finish.

How to choose your drypoint

I offer 5 types of drypoint in three different materials

- Diamond drypoints can be considered as the reference point. The diamond can be used for both gray than black. They incise steel, copper or zinc without difficulty. The work is remarkable flexibility. The only drawback is the relative weakness of the junction between diamond and steel from the rest of the tip. They need to be hold fairly vertically.
- Tungsten carbide drypoint come in three different sharpening. The "incisive" version engrave copper deeper than diamond, and is very suitable for a specific work of black, with beautiful regular burrs. The softer version slides without resistance on the plate and allows to get sensitive gray. The intermediate carbide can be an alternative to the diamond tip if you do not want to risk breaking.
- The ceramic drypoint ? Even softer than the diamond but less incisive, it is unique to make very sweet burrs. It often becomes the favorite tip engravers, but leads to be accompanied by a more incisive tip for deep blacks.

And durability ?

The materials that I use for my tips are the hardest in the industrial field. Nevertheless, all materials eventually wear out. But your handle is not lost: you can order a replacement tip at very affordable rates.
