I have always loved the design of the Vesper Cohen Awl, so I decided to make something very similar.

It is made from hard rock maple, a brass plumbing fitting, and a short piece of O1 hss drill rod. I finished it with four coats of Shellac and some furniture paste wax.

Very nice looking. Thanks for the post, I looked up this Vesper Awl. May have to consider making one myself.

Very nice awl. I like the design as well and made a variation of it some time back. I’ve found it to be much more useful for me than a traditional awl.
