This little Groz Chisel end and Awl end tool was 6 bucks at Woodcraft had some Padauk scraps drilled a hole, some epoxy and some Laquer and a new marking tool.


Shaped it a little to fit in my fingers feels okay used it to mark hinges on the top of a Compost box. Used the awl to mark the screws.

-- Measure once cut twice....oh wait....ooops.

You just had to ask, didn’t you!!! ..LOL.. So. Six sites later, this is the best I can do.

Probably from Old English “ael” or “aul” Originaly used as an Instrument for Piercing Holes i.e. Saddle Maker, Shoe Maker, Upholsterer, Coach Builder, Harness Maker etc. Anyone who fabricated something from Leather for whatever reason. Various Shapes & Sizes, Hook Awl, Straight Awl, Brad Awl, etc.

Carpentry? I use one all the time mostly for scratching a Line I need to cut on. Sometimes I set it where I want to Start a Nail or Screw and THUMP the DULL end …LOL… Actually it’s a 6” Ice Pick that hangs on my VERY Magnetic Tool Holder and magnetizes it. Great for poking in a Hole or behind somewhere that the DAMN Nut or Washer fell into.

MIKE: Your Little Beauty Beats the Hell out of my Ice pick! Nice Tool! OH! You made that Great Little Knife with the Wooden Sheath! I put that one in “My Favorites”.

Working on another knife picked up a kit also from Woodcraft got some Bubinga to use as a handle. It has a leather sheath with it and I laquered the Padauk Knife with the wooden sheath you fav’ed.
