Thing feels great in hand
I needed an awl like this and never got a chance to make one. The price was right and I like the red handle (the barcode sands right off. Good for aligning holes in thin stock and general marking on wood.
A great tool value!
I got this to use as an alignment tool to jam into screw holes and wiggle it around to make everything line up right. It works perfectly for that and is a better solution than the cheap Philips screwdriver I previously used for this task. I've also used the hole in the handle as a lever for hex L keys to get a little more torque. I tend to pull this thing out of my bag more than I thought I would for things it wasn't designed for.
These are well made tools. The awl comes in handy for many chores.
Nice German quality. Matte finish on 6 mm shaft, with intentional longitudinal etching on half of the shaft to the point, likely for fingertip gripping or other purchase. I generally have loved Felo tools.
This awl has an innovative handle and a hole for a lanyard.
