This old scratch awl has been around for a while and looks like it was maybe made by a carpenter. It has a point screw at one end to mark straight lines on wood. The center double block with thumb turn screw adjusts with tension to slide back and forth the distance chosen by the user for the scratch mark. Unfinished natural wood, darken by age and use, it has some cracks in the wood from age (see pics), but still can do the task it was made for. It's 9 1/2" long, 3 1/4" wide and 3" tall. Would make a nice display piece with other older carpenter tools.
