Hand crafted book making awl made by Ru Titley. Thanks Ru for doing an amazing job on this very special and unique piece!! ru-titley-knives

A real pleasure to make this up for you Chris .

The hand made ’ Zen doodle and rambling thoughts’ book below was custom made for me by Chris and is stunningly textured from recycled materials . 

 The awl’s spike was forged by Bones from Silver steel and Ive etched and stone washed it before adding a stag antler handle with a hammered copper lanyard hole and beach found copper ships washer as a bolster .

 The Rustic spike guard  is bamboo slivers dyed and wrapped with 3 strand braided sinew and an old button as an end cap.
