English: Engraving burin used by Mathias J. Horn. Horn was a highly skilled local craftsman who used this tool in the early 20th century for making metal printing plates. This tool, called a burin, is comprised of a handle and a graver. The burin is used to engrave metal, traditionally copper or steel, or wood surfaces. Gravers come in a variety of shapes and sizes to yield different line types.
