Optima Fixed Tip 21A, 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 1/8" 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 $32 instead of the standard $22 for all our other pen tips. Note that this tip is only bent to a 35 degree angle as that is optimum angle to use for most people.
