BONE AWLS OR PERFORATORS ARE FOUND AT MOST ARCHAEOLOGICAL SITES AND WERE IN USE THROUGHOUT ALL PREHISTORIC PERIODS. THEY WERE USED FOR PUNCHING HOLES IN SKINS OR LEATHER FOR SEWING GARMENTS OR OTHER ARTICLES OF CLOTHING. BONE AWLS COULD BE USED FOR PERFORATING MOST SOFTER MATERIALS AND MANY OF THEM WERE PROBABLY ALSO USED IN THE MANUFACTURE OF BASKETRY, MATTING, OR SIMILAR WOVEN MATERIALS AND WEAPONS.

THIS PARICULAR TYPE OF "TRIGGER" AWL IS MOST OFTEN THE ULNA, WHICH ALONG WITH THE RADIUS, MAKES UP THE BONY STRUCTURE OF THE LOWER FORELIMB. THE COMMON NAME ITSELF COMES FROM THE CURVED TRIGGER-LIKE CONCAVITY ON ONE SIDE, SOMEWHAT GIVING THE APPEARANCE OF A HANDGUN.

IT IS NOT SURPRISING THAT THESE PARTICULAR AWLS WHERE FAVORITE PREHISTORIC TOOLS. THE TRIGGER AWL CAN BE CONFORMABLY HELD AND USED IN THREE POSITION. TIP UP WHEN HELD IN A FIST; TIP DOWN, SAME; AND, TIP PROJECTING FORWARD WHEN HELD SO THAT THE MIDDLE FINGER PASSES OVER THE TRIGGER CURVE. THIS IS AN AWL TYPE THAT IS ONE-PIECE, WITH AWL AND HANDLE AS A SINGLE UNIT.
