Scratch Awls

Use to scribe lines on metal, plastic and a variety of other materials. Pierce holes in wood, plastic, leather, even light gauge metal. Blades are high carbon, alloy tool steel fully polished to resist rust. Blade tapers to a fine point and may be resharpened many times. Easy-to-spot orange handles are shock and shatter resistant. Shallow fluted handles with large end bearing surface provide a sure, comfortable grip. User has choice of large diameter or regular grip handles.

Malco’s A00, A0, A10, and A20 offer a regular grip handle. The A1, A2, and A3 have large diameter handles.

Just the best AWL EVER
I have owned this awl for over 14 years and - I thought I lost the opportunity to get another - just in case, but I found it on Ebay and plan to get 4 more -as every equip. tech. that see's what it does for be (my daily use of it for aligning and punching small holes in sheet metal - is WOW) got to get a back up or two. These are great.
