Ok, so, I've read that awls are these super useful tools.

Being new to this, I can't really imagine what they'd be useful for.

But, if they ARE useful for anything, I am confident you folks can enlighten me! :-)

Can I get by without having one? I know lots of people carry a small knife and a Micra - which has no awl. So what's the verdict?

I can't see why it would be useful enough to carry. If you really needed one, you could just take your knife and carve an awl ot of a stick.

is that the thingy you use to poke holes?

I probably use it most out of the leatherman squirt i got for X mas a couple years back.

makes miracles of untying knots, and for peirceing thru something. If you needed it would be good for a rough sew job
