We use this bookbinding awl to punch the holes in paper, the sharp shaft point makes the job easier. The copper ferrule makes them sturdy. The handle has been coated with varnish, it is light and it is comfortable to hold in the hand.
It has been tested by our master bookbinders, when you push hard on the awl, the hardened steel will not bend easily like cheap steel. The wooden handle is long enough to hold, and has a rounded end that does not dig into your hand when push. The copper ferrule holds the shaft tight.
The length of the handle is approx 96mm, the length of the shaft is approx 67 mm
Please note the wood handle has natural grain, so each one is different.
