I made this awl as gift to my wife’s stained glass instructor who gave her a piece of Koa to see if I could use it for anything. It has a 44 Mag shell in the end ( thanks Hilbilllyshooter) , a solid brass ferrule and hardened tip. I was going to make a dowel to send along to protect the tip and the rest of the 44 Mag shell was laying in the lathe chips so I incorporated it into a sheath to guard the blade when carrying it.
The Awl is finished with EEE and Shellawax. The sheath is clear lacquered.
