The Best Sewing Awl for Leather, Wood, and Textiles

Go awl out. Used to punch holes in leather, wood, and textiles, awls have been around since ancient times. The best part of an awl-punctured hole is that it doesn’t leave a cut line, so the hole is equipped to hold a grommet, stitch, or eyelet. Oftentimes, seamstresses will use an awl as opposed to a needle and thread when working with thicker materials like leather, canvas, and denim. Thicker, narrower, and stronger than a knife blade, awl needles punch right through tough materials and hold up well under applied downward pressure. With a variety of different needle types and grip shapes, there are plenty of products to choose from. Browse our selection of the best options below.
