    As per my awl thread I'm making diamond shaped awls for possibles pouches.

    These are hand forged from spring steel. And then shaped and finished by hand. Each one will differ slightly in one way or another.

    These are £5 each plus £1 p+p. So £6 in total.

    Please put your name here in this thread if you'd like to order one.

    As you all know I work offshore so time at home is sporadic. As such there may by a delay of several weeks.
    I'm also low on fuel just now too, I'll do what I can with what I have though.

    As ever, I've still got several pokers in stock as well as a camping buddy.

    Just to clarify, I mean that those who post first will receive first. I'm just making them as the list goes. First three will go to the first three people on the list. Next in line is humpback, then turnip and so on. - just add your name to the list and I'll get one made for you.
    Hopefully I'll bash out the next few by the end of the weekend.

    Arrived today. Great little bit of kit. Matches my stitching pincers gauge perfectly and it's loads better than my manufactured awl. I especially like the fact a cork doubles as a sheath and a handle as it fits snugly through the finger hole.

    Many thanks.

    Sure thing Biker. I don't like taking payment until the item is made so I'll let you know when they're done. I'll have to check postage to France anyway. ;)

    But, making Trev's hammer has used to the last of my fuel. I need to call my charcoal supplier but she's an hours drive away and I'm having all manner of issues with money and the car just now. I've had one of those proper **** days! :/

    worst comes ex to it I'll get a bag of coal and use that.

    Thank you for your patience guys.
