Know what's fascinating? Even though this is one of the most invaluable woodburning tips in a solid-point kit, it is actually not used for "woodburning" very often.
Its best uses are definitely related and super helpful... but not the main burning point you'd use to actually burn your pyrography art.
Did I tell you I made a Board?
I used all the woodburning tips on a basswood board to see which techniques were the easiest, what took some work, and what was a downright pain.
I give you a sample for the shading tip from the board down below.

Woodburning Tips & Their Uses
About the Transfer Point
This tip is about 1 inch around, fairly thick and flat, like a bulky coin.
I remember first seeing this point in my kit and thinking - what the devil is THAT for?
And when I saw how it actually burned wood, my next thought was, well I'm never using THAT tip again.
But as it turns out, this tip just has a very specific purpose.
And when used for that purpose, this little tip is invaluable.
Best Uses: What I love About The Transfer Point
It's main use is what is was named for...
If there is a pyrography pattern you want to use, this is your biggest asset!
Print that pattern out on a laser printer or copy machine then use this tool to transfer it to the wood! Sooooo much easier than using graphite paper or the trusty old fashioned scribble-all-over-the-back-of-the-paper-and-trace-it-on technique.
