Bone Awl


SKU: PT0044. Categories: , . Tags: , .

Product Description

The awl is thought to be the first purpose made tool to allow the sewing of skins together for clothing and shelters. The idea was that the awl would be used to puncture the hide before being used to push the thread through the hole. Indeed ‘a stitch in time’ but exactly when, is anybody’s guess!
