Make hand stitching leather easy with these sharp ergonomic diamond tipped stitching awls
Diamond tipped leather stitching awl sharpened and polished for a professional finish. Hand turned ergonomic handles crafted in your choice of wood. Quality awl blades have been securely inserted and finished to a top standard with an aluminium ferrule.
The blade on the awl handle is used to pierce through your stitch markings. Make hand stitching leather easy with these top quality sharpened and polished diamond tipped awls.
After struggling to find stitching awls at a good enough standard to recommend to my students I set out on a mission to have my favourite tools crafted from scratch.
These awls have been batch manufactured with very limited stock – don’t miss out!
The handles have been shaped and sized to enable ease of handling. Each handle has been lovingly turned by hand in two choices of wood colour either lighter or a darker wood. Considering this each handle is totally unique.
Made from two shades of wood, top quality awl blades and aluminium ferrule. These awls have been individually crafted to a high quality to support your crafting endeavours.
The awl arrives with a cork to protect the tip, well presented, and securely packaged.
Free shipping directly from our Oxfordshire workshop, England. We aim for 1-2 day dispatch, but this may be longer in busy times.

Responsibility & Sustainability
Artisan leather products made to last a lifetime
Hands of Tym's luxury leather goods are made to last a lifetime.
We design and make all our products with sustainability in mind. Our ethos is that our leather products should be well used, and if for any reason they break, they should be worth fixing.
In the unlikely event your Hands of Tym item breaks, we'll happily fix it for you, meaning it will stay with you, and age with you.
Responsibly Sourced Vegetable Tanned Leather
Here at Hands of Tym we source only the finest Italian vegetable tanned leather to make your products.
Some leathers are not well produced and can be damaging for the environment, but our vegetable tanned leather is a world away from this kind of leather. Here's why:
- It's vegetable tanned, meaning only natural and organic materials are used to tan the leather
- Our leather is made by hand using traditional techniques. Artisans use their skilled hands and techniques passed down for generations, to naturally produce the finest leather, with minimal electricity required
- Our leather speaks for itself, meaning no synthetic substances are used (or needed) to treat it once finished. This way our products evolve over time - their personalities change with every passing year you spend together
- Our leather producer is certified by the Genuine Italian Vegetable Tanned Leather Consortium, and commits to reuse and recycle as much waste as possible into a variety of useful products building circularity into the process.
- For our suppliers, vegetable tanning natural leathers is their artisan craft. It’s been practised for generations and is friendly to the earth.
With thought for the environment, each piece of packaging we use, from our kraft boxes, paper tapes, shredded paper fillers and tissue papers, are recyclable.
Buy One, Get One Tree
We've teamed up with Ecologi and the not-for-profit Eden Reforestation Project, meaning with every checkout over £50 on our website we'll plant a mangrove tree in Madagascar.
We're planting a forest on behalf of our customers on designated land, to the north west of the island, near Marataola.
Not only are we helping soak up carbon from the atmosphere, but we're restoring biodiversity in a country where 90% of its original forests have disappeared.
