An awl is a basic yet very important tool in any bookbinder's collection. This model is a traditional 'Clicker Awl' style, so called because of the noise it makes when piercing leather - click click click! It's very sharp and strong and is ideal for working paper, card, leather and cloth.
These are 110mm long in total; the blade itself is just over 6cm long and about 3mm at its widest. As you can see in the accompanying photos it fits nicely in the hand and has a solid feel about it. It comes with a plastic safety sheath to cover the sharp pointy bit at then end when not in use!
Lovely quality, perfect size - the wood is smooth and the whole tool feels solid. Works beautifully so far :)

A very nice sized awl and I've used it a lot already.
Very handy to have.
