Detailed Description

Veritas Japanese-style Awl

You don't need to take a trip to Japan to pick up a fantastic Japanese-style Awl. These awls from Veritas have accurately turned conical tips, strong bolsters and comfortable handles. The tip is A2 steel hardened to Rc60-62 for toughness, and can be replaced if damaged.

The bolster, made from stainless steel, transitions smoothly into the taper of the handle to provide a larger hand contact area. The hard maple handles have been torrefied, a heating process that changes the structure of the wood at the cellular level, to stabilize the handles against swelling and shrinkage caused by humidity changes, especially useful for Southeastern woodworkers.

The small 4-3/8" awl can be cupped in your palm with your fingers close to the tip, allowing more control for delicate work. The large 5-3/4" awl fits comfortably in most hands. Sure to become the awls you reach for when you want project layout to go awl-right!

Made in Canada.
