Burnishers are used to flatten a section of a metal plate in order to remove engraved or etched patterns and lines. This 'erases' the marks on this area. This ball-burnisher is designed to be used for detailed work. If you wish to flatten an extensive area, you would be better off using a straight burnisher.
This tool is made of high carbon tool steel and is manufactured by EC Lyons.
