The square shape of the Two Cherries Birdcage Awl means that it continuously reams the hole instead of pushing and reaming like the bradawl.
The reaming action of the Famag birdcage awl is similar to the bradawl. However, its square shape means that it continuously reams the hole instead of pushing and reaming like the bradawl.
Hence the name, birdcage, at one time these were most commonly used for such tasks as making small holes to stick tiny dowels in to make a quick cheap bird cage.
The continuous reaming of the birdcage awl creates a clean hole. The tapered point means the hole is also tapered, which is beneficial for the insertion of the screw or nail.
The birdcage awl is often considered the most effective woodworking awl because it creates the roundest, most consistent holes.
