This awl set is excellent for quickly sewing and repairing sails, tent canvas and other heavy duty fabrics as well as securely lock stitching leather.
This set includes the Lock Stitch Awl, two needles (one heavy, the other fine) and tightening wrench which can be stored in the contoured wood handle as well as a spool of black thread (12.5 yards or 11.43 meters).
Unlike other brands, this awl comes with two needles instead of one! The needle, with the thread in the eye is pushed through the material. The thread is then pulled through the eye to extend it. As the needle is pushed through the material, the extra thread from the first stitch is then threaded through the loops of successive stitches creating a lock stitch.
Mend tents, canvas bags and all types of leather and canvas with secure lock stitches using this all in one tool. This high quality tool is an excellent addition to your leather workshop. Quality made in Taiwan for the Japan market.
