Awl and Bradawl
From DT Online
Features and Uses
A woodworker might use an Awl to scratch lines along the Grain of timber in much the same way as a metalworker would use a Scriber - (a Marking Knife would be used across the Grain). They are used also to pierce holes in materials such as leather or canvas when stitching for example.
When using a Bradawl the cutting edge is first placed across the Grain of timber to cut the fibres and rotated backwards and forwards to produce small holes suitable for nails or to start screws.
