Accu-Burr™ Burnisher - With Handles
The Accu-Burr™ rod (patent pending) was designed and manufactured by Blackburn Tools and Union Manufacturing Company. The handles are designed and manufactured by HNT Gordon & Co. to fit the rod.
Specifications of the Accu-Burr™ rod from the manufacturer:
Pick a groove and run it over the scraper. We have tested on HSS scrapers with a rockwell hardness of 65, on widths from 0.010" up to 0.100", on all kinds of crazy shapes. Just pick it up and go.
The three grooves machined into the carbide rod allow you to select a 5, 10 or 15 degree burr. So you can be confident that you get the burr you expect. You can select a coarse burr and use your scraper as a shaping tool, or a fine burr for finishing marquetry.
Traditional burnishers require the scraper to be held low in a vice to provide stability and rigidity as the burr is turned. The ACCU-BURR™ is self centering allowing the scraper to sit high in the vice. This makes shaped scrapers like gooseneck scrapers as easy to turn a burr on as any other. Even very small scrapers that would be a challenge with other burnishers are simple to use with the The ACCU-BURR™ .
The The ACCU-BURR™ turns a burr on both sides of your scraper at the same time. Just don't forget to prep both sides!
The ferrule is 11mm brass, and the wooden handle has a 14-16mm diameter.
Accu-Burr burnisher with handles
I haven't used it yet due to illness but all the reviews I've seen are positive. Mr Gordon has produced a truly great looking tool. The design and the colours of the gigee wood, the brass ferrule, and the carbon steel make a striking combination.

Thanks for your positive review and we hope you're feeling better very soon! This is a great way to include some specialty woods in your collection too as we're starting to make these with exotics when we can get them.
Great product after witnessing a Demo of the Tool
I really must say the any HNT Gordon product is "enticing " to buy. Yet very much look forward to using the Accur-Burr tool with the superbly crafted handles for real to enhance the works I am doing. Here I say it is wonderful to deal with people who are passionate about their products they produce with though buying in the specific burr devices required.

Thanks again Barry, it will only take two or three firm strokes and you'll have the perfect burr on your card scrapers. This tool is truly a game changer for those final touches!
Works a treat
The Accu-burr worked perfectly, takes the guesswork out of setting up the scraper. As always, the HNT Gordon handles are both beautiful and very practical. Highly recommended.
Does exactly what it says on the tin.
Awesome. Card scraper sharpening is now a quick and simple thing. Using the scraper so much more now. And it looks fantastic with those handles!
It is what it says
I saw reviews of this tool even from someone who makes and sells their own burnisher. They were all glowing. When I saw Terry was selling beautiful handles with this interesting tool I had to try it out. The card scraper is the most underrated tool in the shed. We all keep getting told this. You see lots of videos with whispy shavings from a card scraper. But I could never get a consistent result that worked. This tool changes all that! Do yourself a favour and buy one.
