This is a Craftplus Pro Diamond Stitching Awl.
Ideal for hand stitching, this awl has a high quality steel blade set carefully into a polished ebony handle. The handle also has flat areas which prevent the awl from rolling off your work bench.
This superior quality awl allows you to make your stitch holes with absolute precision, for the very best results. Saddlers often use the handle of their stitching awl to help push the needle through, when sewing thicker leathers.
Before buying an awl: Stitching awls are perfect if you want to stitch using the traditional saddlers double hand method, but there are other ways to make stitch holes in your leather as well. You may also like to consider a stitch punch, especially if you are just starting out in leather craft.
