This is another scratch awl that I made. This one is made from Cocobolo. Pretty much like the last one, I user a copper water pipe fitting for the furrel and cold rolled steel for the piont. On my last one I did not temper it right away. After severial suggestiong on here I went back and did that. I also tempered this one.

This one is going to be for my brother inlaw that resently got into woodworking. Mike if you read this, it’s on the way.
