This awl is fine and dandy. It works great for its intended purpose.
This tool is a must have for any snap user. And its best to have 2 or 3 just in case you loose one. This awl makes it so much easier to get snaps through any material.
I love my awl and use it often for setting snaps as well as many other craft projects. It is much sharper than other awls I have bought from other companies and I appreciate that feature. The metal pointy part does come detached from the white base often however... I should probably crazy glue it one day since this is a little dangerous.
This is an amazing tool! I don't know how I would snap without it!
This little tool has not let me down yet. Always sharp and ready to go. Makes setting snaps a breeze.
