Subject: RE: Origins: When/where did'Peg and Awl' turn up?
As Masato's post (the song title) suggests, it is a specific tool called a Pegging Awl. A leather-sewing awl forces more of a slit than a round hole such as you would need for a peg. The song in this thread's discussion is usually titled and sung as Peg and Awl, but IMO it's really Peggin' Awl.
