This awl is used for careful marking or pricking when measuring out, the fine point allows . It has a fine 125mm long, polished, tapered, pointed blade with a polished beech handle and brass ferrule. Diameter of blade is 4.8mm.

Poor QualityI have to agree with Michael's review. The blade is loose of the handle and feels as if it could drop out at any moment. The steel is much to soft for the purpose and after the first time I used it on a piece of softwood it bent over. Really not good enough.

Poorly madeThis tool looks the part but is a complete disaster.The blade is not hardened so on first use the tip just bent.,the blade is poorly fixed in the handle and was easily pulled out .Not worthy of Axminster.disappointing.
