This tip is used to create a faux basket bead on platters or bowls. A platter or bowl is turned in the traditional manner. Along the way beads are applied with a special 3/16" beading tool (D-Way) and this pen is used to burn the lines that go across the profile of the turned beads. Because this tip is very difficult to make it sells for $30 instead of the standard $20 for all of our other pen tips. Note that this tip is only bent to a 35 degree angle as that is optimum angle to use it at for most people.
