Making a scribe or scratch awl

Last weekend I Finally got around to a project that’s been on my todo list for a long long time. I made what I hope will be my last scribe/ scratch awl. I designed it to work well  for both woodworking and metalworking. The body is made from  C544 phosphor bronze, and the cutter is a 3/32″ HSS drill blank. The cutter is positively located inside the body by a piece of scrap brass that is loctited to it.
