This is an image I found of one that is similar to mine. The tip which is on this one is the one I use to cut korkers. I always leave this tip on. I cut my V's with scissors then use the barrell of my wood burner to seal the ends. I do it exactly the way the tutorial shows that another hg posted some time back. I think grammyj commented on this thread recently, so it should be in the new posts!!!! HTH!
