I came across these videos by chance and thought this might be a good tool to have in your survival kit. I checked the search and didn't find any
thing explaining how to use one.
A small sewing kit would be good for repairing clothing, but if your shoe/tent/backpack rips a seam, you'll need something more substantial to repair
it. I've seen sewing awls, but no one has ever showed me how to use one. I thought this guy did a pretty good job of explaining what they are and how
to use them to create a locked stitch.
I prefer the larger awl, it can be used to penetrate the jugular, brain stem,eyes, abdominal aorta,kidneys and much much more. It is good for taking
out sleeping would-be attackers. The awl is a must for any bunker.
Good skills for repair or simple gear modifications. I've tinkered with the conventional sewing awls before to repair some old sails. However, I
have evolved and have begun to use the Speedy Stitch for my heavy duty projects. Pretty cool, simply and very tough thread.
