The ZipCutter Burr makes cutting and carving gourds a breeze! Use this burr to cut open your gourds, create fancy rims, and more! The special design of this burr means it is long-lasting and won’t burn out with heavy cutting use.

Use for making all kinds of detailed cuts, including cutting away parts of the gourd around a detailed design, making cut-outs from Stick ‘n Burn designs, making holes for luminarias (also called ‘Gourd Lamps'), and more!The tapered shape is perfect for detailed cuts and carving, and the highly durable metal is so strong it will go right through the gourd WITHOUT having to remove the upper layer of skin first!

Great for large-hole filigree-style carving, etching, and more!
