Rated 4 out of 5 by from It should be in your tool box. This sewing awl isn't something you use often but when you need it there's nothing else like it. I already have one at home but needed it on the road and bought a new one for one job. If you're looking at it on this page you need it so buy it. I've fixed backpacks, luggage, sewn soles on shoes (through existing holes) and leather straps. The awl beats leather needles and a pair of needle nose pliers hands down. Make sure you buy extra thread since you'll have this thing forever but you won't remember where to buy the thread when you run out.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from bulletproof Ordered this as a few repair projects had been building up. Finally ordered it in hopes to repair a heavy vinyl/naugahyde type material that I had been quoted over $400 to replace. $10 later and 30 minutes of my time including reading the directions and it's fixed. Should have gotten this long ago. Definitely should be a fixture in all outdoors persons tool chests. Now on to my backpack straps, duffel straps, stirrup leathers, boots, etc. Overall idiot proof. Works good, lasts long time.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Awesome low tech tool I am in the military, got my stich awl in '03 used it to repair the seams on my combat boots (which I wore for an additional 3 years after the repair), the boot leather finally ripped through leaving me to buy a new pair of boots but the stitching held strong and true right up to the end. The concept is straight forward and the directions are just as easy to understand. This should be in every adventurers tool kit.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from AWESOME REPAIR TOOL I have used the speedy stitcher awl to fix my backpacks and even repair the canvass exterior to my Jeep. It makes easy, tight, tough stitches. The thick wax thread is up to almost any job. I love this tool. I take it in my Jeep on extended trips so if someone has a tent, backpack or other equipment failure, I can fix the item on the spot.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Heavy duty stitcher Used my son's Speedy Stitcher to replace broken plastic belt attchment for cell phone holster. Sewed on nylon strap so well I'll go buy the Stitcher for myself. Just have to keep finger away from point of penetrating the fabric or other item (very sharp tip).

Rated 4 out of 5 by from very handy but... I've used these for literally, decades. Mostly to repair boots and backpacks in the field. Pull a tight stitch and be sure your ending knot is good and doesn't come undone and it is a very strong and durable repair. [...]

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Repair leather, canvas whatever needs stitching. These tools have been around for a long time. I was surprised to find them at REI with thread. I can repair or create most things I need from leather or canvas with this tool.
