GourdMaster™ Fili-Point Burr

Do you ever wonder how "they" do it? Those fancy cuts, filigree carving, amazing gourd rims? They all look so beautiful, but how do they do it? The secret is the GourdMaster™ Fili-Point Burr. This unique burr was created specifically for use on gourds and is by far our most popular burr with gourd artists.

The Fili-Point Burr is a double-coated diamond burr that tapers to a fine point allowing you to create amazing carvings on any gourd (yes, even the thickest Welburn gourds!)

"I just wanted you to know how much I like the Fili-Point Burr. It is the best burr I've used for doing filigree cut work. Unlike other pointed burrs that leave ridges, the Fili-Point makes a nice clean cut the first time and saves a step. It can be used for doing small filigree as well as large cut outs. Welburn you got a keeper with this one." - Gloria Crane

We named this burr the"Fili-Point" burr because it is designed specifically for creating micro-filigree and large filigree. It is also strong enough to cut through Welburn's famous thick shelled gourds, so you can make intricate cuts, and your own gourd cut-outs!

Manufactured and designed exclusively for GourdMaster™, the "Fili-Point" Burr is made with the highest quality industrial grade diamonds. Unlike standard diamond burrs, the "Fili-Point" burr is made with a double coating of jagged cut diamonds. This makes them more durable and longer-lasting than standard diamond burrs.

"The [Fili-Point] burr is awesome! The cutting action is powerful and so smooth, like cutting through butter, so it leaves a clean edge - this means less sanding for me (always a good thing!). From tiny filigree holes to larger cut-outs, this burr easily does it all! I love that I can just plunge it right into the gourd and it doesn't grab. Because of it's size it fits into tiny corners, so I can cut really intricate shapes." - Mary Gehley
