This scratch awl marker can be stored in the handle grips of the manufacturer's aviation snips. Storage in the aviation snips enables the awl to be at hand when it's needed for marking and inscribing metal and other materials to be cut with the snips, the company states. The awl is designed to allow sheet metal workers to use the awl for hole punching, by striking it on the handleless striking end. It is 3.5 inches long.
