Product Information:

Awls make holes, usually to start screws in wood or push thread or lace through leather. The WoodRiver Max Awl is an elegant, beautiful interpretation of this age old tool. Approximately 5” long with the metal portion making up just about 3” in length and tapering from a massive 5/8” to the point, making holes with the Max is fast and easy plus it looks good on standby.


  • 5” Long Total

  • Metal Portion 3” Long, 5/8” Diameter Tapering To The Point

  • Sharp Point Makes It Easy To Use

    Comments about WoodRiver Max Awl :

    I use this in building guitars, acoustic and electric, sometimes using EXTREMELY hard woods. This things marks even bubinga and purpleheart easily and accurately with no dulling, and is SUPER sturdy! Don't let the bulky look scare you. As big as it looks, it actually tapers to a sharp needlepoint for extreme precision, with no dulling.

    Comments about WoodRiver Max Awl :

    Disappointed to find that mine was bent - there was a slight arc along the metal tip. Rather than return it I ground it true in a couple of minutes on my sharpening rig. Then I cleaned up the top of the wood handle, where you would tap it with a mallet. That wasn't a symmetrical shape across the top. But gee, for [$] such a simple little tool should be flawless, not a nice kit for making what you thought you were buying. Makes me feel foolish for buying it.It (now) works as intended for punching centers on turning pieces and marking various spots for holes and so forth. And looks nice.

    I need to do a lot of precise drilling with a hand drill. Using this to start the hole lets be be more precise. The large handle is great for my arthritis.
