Not a replacement for "Stitcher Awl" Needles!
on June 27, 2012
Amazon groups this item with the stitching awl, and like a dumbass I didn't read close enough to confirm if I was purchasing what I needed (replacement needles for the awl).
However, these needles are great!
Cheap and strong! Just like I like my coffee!
I stitched a new sewing palm for myself, and these needles are tough!
Even when I grabbed a needle by the eye with my pliers and had to twist to get the needle through 3 layers of leather and 2 of rawhide, it didn't break! Most needles, when subjected to the misguided abuse I put them through, snap at the eye. Some even when I'm using my fingers!
I foresee many sails and gear being stitched in both manufacturing and repairs with these needles!
