Use the tapered awl from Dritz to punch holes in leather, vinyl, plastic and fleece. It can also hold and ease fabric under your needle while sewing, or be used to start holes for small wood screws
The special ergonomic design on this awl features a thick handle and a rounded, soft end to help eliminate stress and protect the palm of your hand. The end of the handle removes to become the protective cap. Simply pull off the soft end and place over the tip, then snap into place.
