I once saw a screwdriver, but it's really more like a small pipe, thats pointy and has a handle. This screw driver looking tool is used to poke through grommets and you are able to pass a wire inside of it. I was just wondering, what is the name of this tool and where can i get it?

Typically made by Thexton we commonly referred to them as grommet pokers but the correct name is a wire insertion tool, as mentioned above.

In my area it is also known as a broken fishing rod..... longer, flexible and if you lose it you can always count on the local fishing store to have another broken one. Cut off all the eyes on it and away you go. Naturally decreases in size nicely as well, so much smaller and easier to insert into a grommet as well.
