You must determine your abilities and how much involvement in the art you want. Sadly if you don’t have artistic ability or the ability to develop it. Your wood burning quality will be hobby level and will look like it. Nothing wrong with that. That is my level. Same thing goes with wood carving, painting, sculpting, etc. Now on the other hand Stumpy Nubs (my son) has natural artistic ability and he can, paint, carve, sculpt, and would easily pick up wood burning if he wanted to. (must have got it from his mother!)

As far as tools. If you want to test your skills and ability to advance them start with any of the inexpensive burners you reviewed. How many of us have spent way to much money on “I think I would like to to that’” tools just to see after a short time it “ain’t our thing.” If you have the desire, ability, and the money, then you need to if you can afford it to, throw the $19.00 pen in a drawer and spent $200.00 on a Razortip.
