I thought it would be nice to have a scratching awl to go along with my marking knife. This is also made out of cedar has the same finish and it’s about the same size i made the metal piece removable so that it can be sharped.
here’s a link to my marking knife:
These are great little tools to have around the shop i love using these, they work so good!!!

As Charles Dickens once wrote re-scrooge when he walked up the steps to his apartment he said home made sharpening awls are just to his mind like the dark as he said I like the dark it’s cheap .I love your home made awl and after awl who would buy such a nice and inexpensively made tool ? and who could manufacture one as nice as you have? all in Dickens own words there somewhere for the reading LOL . Thanks for sharing.Alistair PS I have one I made myself just like your own.
