      A:  Yes it is absolutely hard enough to scribe in mild steel. You can even take a hammer and make a dimple before you drill. It works great for making a pilot hole in a stud through Sheetrock.

        Q:What are the thicknesses of the pancture

        Answer This Question

        A:  It is tapered so it starts small enough to make a starter hole for a #6 screw up to about 3/16”. It works great for plastic anchors. I use it all the time to start a hole in a stud for a lag bolt when mounting a tv. It’s also very sharp and have poked myself more than once.

          A:  3/16"

              A:  Not sure of the question but it is a sharp point that tapers to about 1/4”

              by|Jul 23, 2021

                A:  The shank diameter is approximately 0.2” at its thickest and tapers to a fine point.

                  Works well as ice pick
                  High quality tool would buy again. I use this as an ice pick. way nicer than actual ice picks and about the same money. nonslip handle is great. I dulled the tip just a little, so it's not so pointed.

                  Fine tool, and have used it more than expected. I made a sheath for it out of a long Styrofoam fishing float that fits really well, something to consider to tame the sharp end. Now it fits safely in a pocket of my open tool kit, ready for use.
