Handmade ash bookbinding awl.
Hand turned from Ash one of these awls is the prefect tool to use with our pricking jigs.
Ideally weighted and perfectly contoured to fit your hand.
Micro polished and finished with quality woodworking wax. Fitted with a brass ferule to prevent splitting.
The silver steel blade is sharpened to a fine point. Then hardened and tempered to make it tough. Finally the blade is heat treated to a deep blue colour.
Our handmade bookbinding ash awl blade fits perfectly in the holes in our pricking jig.
Being a handmade awl from wood, each one will have a different grain structure and the blade colour may vary from those illustrated.
The awl measures approximately:-
115mm overall length
55mm blade length
