Diamond shaped replacement awl for Luxury awl.
Excellent for saddlers.
This awl is made of high-performance cobalt steel.
The shape of the blade has been perfectly studied (6 planes instead of the traditional 4) to penetrate the leather like butter, but also to be able to come out without having to feel this small blocking point typical of ordinary awls.
Each width of awl comes with its own specific ferrule and mechanism so that, for example, the 2mm awl will not fit into a handle of a different size.
Tips for use :
The material used for the iron makes it extremely effective but also fragile!
It cannot be twisted and if dropped, it can break. Do not hesitate to cover the floor of your workshop with a carpet to avoid this mishap but above all place the awl on its flat surface to prevent it from slipping and falling.
