Weak
My friend tried to mark a piece of pine with moderate pressure and the first inch broke off.

Basic scratch awl
I bought this awl to replace one I had bought locally. It ended up being the same awl (adequate), but not fine enough to help with caning. It also cost more than twice what I originally paid locally.

When you get down to the end of caning a seat, you run into some tight spots. I have used whatever I had handy, but feel the rounded handle will be a little easier on my hands. After caning a seat, the hands (fingers) need a little ease.
