Lee Valley Scratch Awl
Most scratch awls have a round handle, which makes it easy for them to roll off a bench. We designed this one with a 3" long rosewood handle with two flats to ensure it does not go anywhere when you lay it down.
The 5" long tapered blade is dressed to a fine point for precise marking and layout.
Hardened to Rc55, the high-carbon steel blade does not dull quickly.
