Burin E (Hook Burin)

[Safety Rules]
  Pull the burin backward to hook some wood-fiber.  Then, pick up and peel the wood-fiber out of the tree to complete Si-Diao process.

  When using the Burin E, the region 90 degree extended from the burin edge is a dangerous area as indicated in Fig. 1.  Nothing can be left in the dangerous area except the burin has stopped carving (Fig. 2).  Hold the burin to hook the wood, and pull the burin backward to raise some wood-fiber (Fig. 3).  Then, clamp the lifted fiber by another thumb in order to pull up and peel the fiber along the grain of the wood (Figs. 4~6).  Sometimes, sharp-nose pliers can be used for peeling the fiber.
