side view of horn handled saddlers awl...

heres a side view of my favorite awl...and the little leather point sheath I use for most all of the awls....its just a narrow bit of scrap leather wrapped with waste cord. Its wrapped tightly enough so that slides securely over the point and a bit of the ferrule. A bit of clear tubing also works, but its a bit harder to get off....I have a few tip covers made of that too, and would post a photo of those, but have you ever tried to get a photo of clear little bits of tubing? I couldnt get one....go figure.
