Solid Point Burner
The solid point “craft-style” burners are extremely popular amongst beginners to pyrography, especially because they are easier to grip and heat to a pre-adjusted temperature.
Solid point pens also tend to be more affordable and easiest to transport, as all parts are included in the pen itself.
Some of these craft-style burning pens even come with a heat shield to protect your hand from getting too hot.
Solid point pens do require quite a bit of patience though, as they can take quite a while to heat up, cool down, and burn the wood altogether.
Wire-nib Wood Burner
Because they offer much more control and tend to be a bit pricier, wire-nib wood burning tools are commonly chosen by seasoned pyrographers.
These tools are much smaller, making it easier to hold them for longer periods of time, and also provide lots of control over the temperature.
Wire-nib wood-burning pens come with their own learning curve though, and are difficult to transport, so these are not typically recommended for the beginner.
