17th Century Awl
( / )Unavailable
Used in tailoring and dressmaking for centuries, the awl (such as our 17th Century Awl) is a useful tool for creating eyelet holes by opening the weave of the fabric without cutting. This results in a stronger eyelet able to hold up to continuous strain, as evidenced by the many stays we have examined.
Our 17th Century Awl:
- Based on an original awl held in the collection of Historic Jamestowne dated 1610.
- Is a handy tool for pressing linen and making thread Dorset buttons.
- Measures 3 1/2 inches long.
