Hi all, I need your help locating some fantastic burnishers.
I bought an estate of a hobbyist jeweler who had a tool collection
the likes of which few have seen. Amidst the pile of burnishers
were two small ones that are just FANTASTIC! I want to find who
They were, I believe, commercially made It has been a big surprise
to discover that they have not been in the catalogues I have checked.
The first one is 15 mm long, 2 mm wide and thin, with a curve on
The second is 10 mm long, 2 mm thick, and tapered at the tip to
reach tight places.It is about 5 mm at the widest points. It is V
shaped, much like an arrowhead. It has a fat, round mahogany
handle, well shaped to fit in the hand, tapering at both ends of it,
Good grip shape.
They are so good, I use them almost exclusively. Other jewelers who
have seen them have always commented and raised their eyebrows in that
special way that says, ‘‘Got more?’’ I WISH!!!
Anyone know anything about these two little work horses?
Thanks soooo much… Frif
