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.

Thank you so much for posting this! You have just helped me tremendously in figuring out how to sew my canvas grocery bags for surviving now with nothing but a Honda scooter as transportation.


The man in the videos is an excellent teacher and I will certainly have to go to his YouTube links when I get and chance and thank him also.

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.



Thread and needle in a nice little package.

Thanks for sharing!

This could be very useful if society fell apart and there was not an endless supply of clothing and services. Thank you very useful.
