Although you might wonder what the big deal is and why not use a straight bodkin to tease dubbing, or a brush, and I have used both myself and used both to modest satisfaction – but there is something substantially more satisfying in this curved bodkin, a finer motor control, and less frequent risk of cutting core thread with either a straight bodkin or a wire brush.
