BASKETRY: Tools

WAXED BASKET THREAD
For tieing rims and handles. Tan color. See other cords as well, especially hemp, artificial sinew and waxed linen.
FID
Made as a leather-working tool, has a diamond-shaped flat in the middle of the blade, blunt point. Blade is 2½" long, the fid is 5" over-all.

BONE AWL
Made from genuine bone. A hardened, unfeeling finger, to poke ends and courses of weaving painlessly into place. 5¾" long. Packing tool.

BONE LASHING AWL
Made from white bone and shaped like the plain bone awl; one end is pointed and grooved.

AWLS
The smallest awl with the wooden handle (# 0) is our most popular. The unpretty plastic-handled awls are near to indestructible. #1 and #2 are best for most basket applications.
