Tired of awls which won't hold a point and which bend during use? CTW awls are designed for hand comfort and durability. The O-1 tool steel blades are taper ground and hardened to Rc 62-63 for approximately 2 inches of their length and terminate in a fine point. The handles are, like the marking knives, made from exotic and figured domestic or tropical hardwoods and are available to match the marking knives. They are also available in customs sizes and woods by special order. Use them to start screws, mark drilling locations, or even in place of a marking knife to scribe layout lines.
