Scratch and Punch Awl with High-Torque Handle


The exact color of the black oxide blade finish may vary.


Strong, Stout Blade

  • We heat-treat AISI 8650 steel, a Ni-Cr-Mo alloy, to 52–56 HRC to make the blade strong without being brittle.
  • A black oxide finish is applied to prevent corrosion. Keep lightly oiled.

Hard, Durable Handle

The overmolded grip provides a nonslip surface that is permanently bonded to the handle and won't degrade or become sticky over time.

Comfortable Grip

Hand holding the Awl

The handle's three-sided contoured geometry directly engages the structure of your hand for greater comfort and control.
