After read the “Hand Tools Essentials” book from Popular Woodworking Magazine, I was convinced that I should have one of this tool. Czeck Edge sells it for $50 and a kit without handle for $20… Way too much for this tool.
I then bought a second hand mini file for $2 and ground it to the shape. You can see the file in the second picture.
Handle is from cherry scraps and shaped with a rasp, not perfectly round but enough. It should have a larger back, I may do a new one someday.
I liked very much how it works cutting a perfect round hole instead of just make a punch like normal round awls.
Thanks for reading :)
