Awls are important woodworking hand tools that are used to carve intricate details into wood. They are often used in a scratch or chisel-like motion along the grain of the wood, creating smooth indentations, rivets and crevices for a more stylized appearance. Scratch awls are also used in leatherworking for tracing lines and patterns into leather materials. These tools are necessary for those workers looking to add sophisticated designs into their materials.
