burin -> burin

Le terme « burin » désigne différents outils utilisés dans des domaines variés tels que la gravure, la maçonnerie, la sculpture ou la taille de la pierre. Il est également employé en chirurgie pour désigner un instrument à extrémité biseautée tranchante destinée à entailler l'os.

Burin from the French burin meaning "cold chisel" has two specialised meanings for types of tools in English, one meaning a steel cutting tool which is the essential tool of engraving, and the other, in archaeology, meaning a special type of lithic flake with a chisel-like edge which was probably also used for engraving, or for carving wood or bone.
