"Extension"

Some tools, no, most tools have a soul.  These 5 awl's have a history or a memory longer than my time here. When I look at the wear, the patina, the imperfections of the tips of the steel, they were all made by the work and effort of the worker that engaged them.

This is a visual representation of the extension of one's hand.
