Rated 5 out of 5Â by rwb1012 Sharp 2.5mm tip
It's the same design as the one I bought 30 years ago except that the handle is plastic instead of wood. The 2.5mm tip is just the right size. This is a purpose designed bradawl.
I've just ditched the previous replacement after a couple of weeks as the tip was blunt and much larger. I call that a screwdriver.

Rated 3 out of 5Â by sanzomat Quality not what it used to be
I bought an identical Stanley bradawl around 25 years ago and when it eventually gave in to my mistreatment of it I thought it was worth getting another one. The new one didn't do quite so well, in fact it failed on the first use. I'm guessing it was a manufacturing defect as although it looked fine just a slight pressure on the tip and the metal shaft dissapeared back into the plastic handle. Screwfix replaced it with no quibbles and the replacement seems okay. Nice sharp point, ideal for marking/starting holes in wood etc. fits nicely in the hand. Just a doubt as to whether it'l last as well as my old one!

Rated 5 out of 5Â by ez69 So good I bought two more
It's a bradawl. What more can I add? It feels well made and should last a long time.
